By default, the Control Panel registers that icky green color ("baby-puke
green" I think it's called). You can spec it in an RTF by just listing the
color as "\cf0" (last character zero). The RTF has a color def table at its
head that spells out the colors, with the first one usually being default.
However, you can make jumps any color you want, just by preceding the jump
with an RTF color definition (or have the tool create it for's one
more speck of control I like to get straight out of Word). You can even make
the jumps "invisible," meaning that there's no underline or color change.
It's kind of a surprise jump.
