I've written code that generates reports in RTF before. It can be
done, but it was pretty tedious. (OTOH, I wasn't able to find a
decent spec for RTF and had to reverse-engineer the relevant bits by
looking at Word-generated RTF.) One major advantage, though, of
doing it yourself: Less bloat. My final RTF output was well under a
third the size of what Word generated for an identical document.
