I've got a book-length document heavily formatted in LO writer, which I've exported to rtf. I'm trying to understand exactly what gets included in that new file.

When I open it in WordPad on Windows it shows what I would expect an rtf document to look like--a continuous document, no page breaks, and minimal formatting.

When I open it in LO on Linux, however, I get a strange output with some but not nearly all of the odt formatting that I assumed would be stripped out when saving as rtf.

When I try to open it in WordPad in Wine, Wine freezes up. (Don't know if Wine is otherwise working properly, since I haven't really used it.)

What I'm concerned about is what will happen when I try to import this rtf into Scrivener or use it to generate an epub version. So, again, my question is what all is included in that new rtf file and do I need to do anything to get a 'cleaner' rtf file.
