Thank you.
It doesn't do tables. So this implementation is incomplete even though
it uses rtf as its default file format.

And it's Windows only. Why should I install this on a Windows box where
I already have Microsoft WordPad?

a. I'm not suggesting that you install it; I was only offering it as an example of a fairly full-featured program that uses RTF as its default file format.

b. Atlantis is much more full-featured than WordPad. It supports paragraph styles, (and implements them much better and simpler than either MS-Word or LO), multiple columns, page/section breaks, editable headers/footers, and on and on. It has one of the best built-in EPUB translators I've seen, for creation of e-books. It imports ODT files nearly flawlessly. And I have found it to be rock-solid in terms of stability. No, it's not free; it's shareware with a $35 registration, and no, it doesn't run natively under Linux (but I have run it with Wine, although not without some rough edges).

c. Again, I'm not advocating for Atlantis, only pointing out its existence in a thread about RTF files. I always use it when I need to share documents with my Word-bound colleagues.
