jfor is not meant to be about text only, but has initially been written for a 
customer project that required only text and straight-looking tables, hence 
the perceived emphasis on text.

Andreas Putz contributed much code regarding images: PNG, JPEG, GIF, EMF and 
BMP images are supported in jfor 0.5.1.

The plan is to use Batik for SVG, but no one is working in that currently.

Table borders, among a bunch of other things, are being worked on by Chris 
Scott, self-titled "Head engineer of making it look pretty", which is 

So, even though in my view RTF is more a "structure format" than a "layout 
format", it wouldn't hurt to get better-looking documents out of jfor, and 
the current code base is certainly open to improvements!
