It's sort of HTTP/HTML with none of the advantages. I'd rather work in
HTML than RTF, although I suppose at the time RTF was more developed and
had more markup features.

The real question would be if it degraded gracefully (i.e., a regular
gopher menu for every RTF menu), which I haven't investigated. If it did,
then I *would* call that an advantage, but I imagine that was not part
of the spec.
