Description Konstantin 2012-08-19 16:19:16 UTC
I'm working on my own RTF parser on Python for our company, so I downloaded RTF specification from Microsoft web site, and implemented some features. But document, created with OOO Writer 3.4 is not conforming specifications.

RTF manual says:
<fontinfo> :: themefont>?

and this is a quotation from the saved document:
{\f0\froman\fprq2\fcharset0 Times New Roman;}

so \fcharsetN and \fprq are on wrong places.

The RTF 1.9.1 specification referenced here may be obtained at

Comments on RTF end-of-life and further background are available in the Wikipedia coverage:

[I notice that I still refer to 1.6 as the end-all of RTF, and I must train myself to use 1.9.1 as the proper designation.]
