What do you think about the idea of an Emacs mode based on properties
representing styles as I outlined earlier?

The tiny OpenDoc example:

#("Nic Ferrier - CV" 0 16 (element h2))
#("Nic is a hacker with some crazy ideas" 0 37 (element para style p1))

I think this would work for RTF as well. Clearly we wouldn't need an
XML parser for RTF.
