For more substantial reports, annexes are recommended and desirable

The lines on the tables should not be thinner than 0,2 mm, and if the original has to be reduced in size, the lines should be at least 0,3 mm thick. Drawings, sketches and tables should be accompanied by a drawn scale of measurement (not M = 1 : 1). The margins of the tables should be 0,5 mm thick, with the author's name and the number of the table (author, number of the table, figure) clearly written outside the margins.
