Oliver Scholz <address@hidden> (Cc-ed) has done some work on an
RTF reader for Emacs a couple of years ago.  Maybe his work is useful
in the current context.  Oliver has signed papers for Emacs (past and
future changes) and I'm quite sure he'd assign this code as well.

Here's the summary from the project page:

,----[ http://savannah.nongnu.org/projects/emacs-rtf/ ]
| This package aims to implement the "Rich Text Format" (RTF), version
| 1.5, as a file format for GNU Emacs. It also provides the necessary
| framework to edit RTF documents in an Emacs buffer. It is thus
| intended to enhance the word processing capabilities of the Emacs
| environment. The goal is to enable a user to edit RTF documents
| without launching a non-Emacs application like OpenOffice or abiword.
| This package is in a very early state of development. Currently only
| the reader is in the work, and only the main structure of it is
| implemented. Some RTF documents are already rendered correctly,
| though.

Bye, Reiner.
