I have found a useful site which collects Family Group Sheets, organized by states.
They require a plain text format. I was disappointed that RM4 did not allow me to do such a report.

The desired format:

A work-around (until your wish is fulfilled) with extra steps is to save to the RTF format, open with WordPad and save from there in plain text format. The result is not the same as the model shown but is plain text...

Bill Bienia suggested that I include the following:

In your request, be sure to mention the RM3 text based report as that is almost ideal. To meet the web page requirements, there would also need to be an option to exclude all facts except, Birth, Marriage, Death and Burial. (This was not in the RM3 text-based FGS, nor is there an easy way to do it in RM4.)
