TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
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.]
