The TE will edit the text of the UST wherever it fails to meet the UST guidelines. The TE will follow after a preliminary aligning team that has pre-aligned all of the easy parts, leaving the parts that could not be easily aligned. It will be the responsibility of the TE to review the work of the pre-aligning team and to correct any errors. The TE will also decide what to do with the parts that the pre-aligners have left unaligned.
