Ok.  Stop there.  Now repeat the same steps substituting RTF for TXT.

Sure, RTF supports many of THE most commonly used text editing features 
(bold/italic/underline, tabs/indents/spacing, font face/size/color) but it 
doesn't support many advanced Word features (widow/orphan control, footnotes, 
column layouts, etc.) and if you are relying on a document that involves those 
features will Word inform you that your target file format is not sufficient 
for what you are trying to save?  Or will it just silently assume your document 
doesn't care about those features and save what it can, effectively discarding 
those features when you close out your session?
