Hi :)
I think i'm not the only one having a "bad hair day".  My guess is that
most people realise what you were saying.

It is annoying to have to deal with all these different formats with
different programs most of which fall away or change beyond recognition.  I
tend to find that LibreOffice/OpenOffice tend to become the best tool for
dealing with most formats that become abandoned by everyone else.
Regards from
Tom :)

On Windows, I have found Atlantis to be very well behaved. It's default

 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

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.
