Can anyone tell me what the RFT (rich text format) tagging conventions
are and what they mean? Or, tell me where to get that info?
Right now, I want to do this but it's subject to change:

1) understand how Neuron Data (N.D.=a software development package) expects
for tags on the help files that accompany its software. (I can
get this "understanding" by looking at N.D. online help development
examples.) (The N.D. salespeople *say* that their help files are
in RTF format and they *say* I can use Word to enter text and
output RTF files that the Neuron Data help environment understands.)

2) understand the tagging conventions that RTF produces

3) find out if 1) and 2) are significantly different.

4) find out if Neuron Data's help authoring tools are decent or whether
to use another help authoring tool (ForeHelp, or Doc-to-Help, whatever).

5) if I use another help authoring tool, is its output usable in
Neuron Data environment.

So, what I'm asking TECHWR-L for is info. about 2) above.
(Can anyone dissuade me that the items 1) to 5) are unnecessary work and
overkill and that there's an easier way to figure out what help
authoring tools to use?)
