Abstract: The Chandra standard data processing now includes a group of summary pages that offer a synopsis of the observation. Chandra's instrument and grating combinations form many different spacecraft configurations. For each configuration, a specific summary of the observation is required. We need a flexible and expandable page formatter to handle this situation. One result of this development is the sum_format_page tool. This C++ tool is built on object oriented design principles and constrain the flexibility to produce multiple output file formats. Here we discuss the motivations for the tool, the design and implementation, and future enhancements that need to be considered.
