Star Office 5.2 [was Re: Plea for help]

Do you know if Applix's RTF is less bloated (ok, significanly less
bloated) than MS's?  Also, I've noticed that MS Word, Applix, SO, &
Wordperfect all manage to interpret RTF differently.  A LaTeX
(Lyx/KLyx/GtkLyx [see sourceforge]) system would be better, but MS
Office doesn't do that, & too many people use MS Office.
