Hi Peter, I tentatively suggested using XSLT to generate RTF a little while ago, but I had no idea whether it was feasible. The main question would seem to be: is RTF a text-only format or a binary format? Can anyone answer that one for us? AFAIK, everything in RTF can be expressed with

Bertrand, Thanks for clarifying that. The feasibility of an XSLT transform would be greatly influenced by the complexity of the mappings of properties into RTF structures. If the inheritance model of XSLFO had no ready parallel in RTF, that set of transformations would be a nightmare, I
