A draft of a document is one of several revisions, typically a crude and early one, though one may also speak of a final draft. Important and lengthy documents often go through several drafts, becoming successively more refined at each stage until the final publishable product is produced.
The page layout of a document is the manner in which information is graphically arranged in the document space (e.g., on a page); it is generally the responsibility of a graphic designer.
Traditionally, the medium of a document was paper and the information was applied to it as ink, either by hand (to make a hand-written document) or by a mechanical process (such as a printing press or, more recently, a laser printer).
Documents in all forms are frequently found to be material evidence in criminal and civil proceedings.
