Re: OT: html or text to rtf conversion tool?

My experience is also that PDF works fine, since they're usually just
looking for something that will pop up when they click a link, and most
people have acrobat reader installed. So converting your html to ps (by
printing it to a file), then ps2pdf might work.

There's a package out there called RTFTools; I downloaded source a while
ago to try to convert LaTeX->RTF, couldn't get it to compile, and forgot
about it. It's called "RTF Tools" but I can't quickly find an URL.
