I have finally begun work on my RTF to "styled-html" converter application. I have been trying to use Paul DuBois' rtftools package, but I had lots of trouble trying to get imake to build the make files on Linux. I hacked a semi working version together using Visual C++.
Having got this far I fear the rtftools package is badly out-of date, it complains about lots of RTF tags and doesn't know to ignore /*/ groups - so it ends up dumping garbage into the text stream...
I downloaded and installed wvware which is used in AbiWord and it works really well with Word 8 files, but doesn't appear to support RTF. What is the best RTF reader package out there?
I must admit I'm kind of impressed by badvogato. I'm still working on my own version. I want to add Topics to the articles and maybe do event notices (in place of diaries).
