Hi all-

I'm working in FrameMaker and using MIF2Go to convert the files to RTF
so I can send them off for review. (We don't have Acrobat 8 yet, so PDF
is not an option...)

Obviously, the RTF files are HUGE, and when I save them to .doc format,
they're much smaller and therefore easier to email around. However, I'm
working with several books at once, and each book contains at least a
dozen files. Is there a quick way (either using MIF2Go or some function
in Word) to open each RTF in a ZIP file (or directory), save it to .doc
format in Word, and close it so I don't have to do this manually? Even
after they're zipped, the RTF files are several MB and I have to send
the PDF under separate cover.

Thanks for any help on this!
