Maybe I missed something, but I THOUGHT Rich Text Format (RTF)
was a ^generic^ text format ... I suppose there are a few
text editors/word processors that lack an RTF filter, but if
they cost more than $49.95, I'll bet the filter is there.
Likewise, RTF may be loaded into every page comp program I
ever used (FrameMaker, Intergrief, Ventura). Even the
Unix set (ApplixWords, Island Write)accommodates RTF.
[Don't tell anyone, but RTF's ^first name^ is MS.]
