Can Lulu please provide Book Manuscript Templates in alternative formats?
Not everyone in the world has $700 to pay for Microsoft Office, even if we did, not all of us enjoy using it. We all have our favorite applications (OpenOffice.org, Bean, TextEdit, NotePad, ByWord... The list of alternates is endless).
Lulu used to make .RTF files available along side .DOC file templates. Why did they go away? We're begging you to please bring them back! .RTF files worked with EVERYTHING!
We understand that you can't make templates for all the hundreds of alternative competitors for MS Office, but bringing back the generic .RTF files will help us IMMENSELY.

You don't need a template. After all they only set margins for you.
You can create your own document with whatever program you choose. Just set the margins, font type and size and off you go.
If you are really stuck then just ask someone here to make you a template. It's only 10 secs work to do so.

I'm completely confised now. If there were no set dimensions, then there would be no manuscript templates. Since there are tempates, I must assume there are required margins an dimensions. I don't think that an 8.5x11 page size would translate well to a pocket size book of 4 inches by 6 inches.
I'm missing something here and I don't know what it is.
