Thanks, Ray---and Liviu, too. Sorry, if I was given the link to latex2rtf I 
didn't realize It. Probably because I was assuming it was a script somewhere in 
the lyx package, or maybe in my tex/latex install, and that I just needed 
either to get it recognize by lyx or learn how to run it from the terminal. 

I've downloaded the source, and have located a discussion with pretty clear 
instructions of how to compile it. I'll be giving it a shot, but probably not 
till the weekend.

Thanks again,
