         Type: Word processing
    Extension: RTF
      Version: 1.4
  Compression: None
  Color Depth: 24-bits
   Maintainer: Microsoft Corporation
Specification:

Upon the official Microsoft blurbs I cannot improve:

"The Rich Text Format (RTF) standard is a method of encoding
formatted text and graphics for easy transfer between MS-DOS,
Windows, Windows 95, OS/2, and Apple Macintosh applications."

"The RTF standard provides a format for text and graphics
interchange that can be used with different output devices, operating
environments, and operating systems. RTF uses the ANSI, PC-8,
Macintosh, or IBM PC character set to control the representation and
formatting of a document, both on the screen and in print. With the
RTF standard, you can transfer documents created under different
operating systems and with different software."

"Version 1.4 of the RTF Specification contains all RTF controls
introduced by Microsoft applications through the release of Word
7.0."

A self-extracting archive containing the RTF 1.4 specification and a
sample RTF reader may be FTPed from Microsoft:

  

Or downloaded from Microsoft's BBS at: +1.206.936.6735

RTF is often confused with the IBM Revisable-Form Text Document
Content Architecture (RFT), which also enables the portability of
word processing documents between dis-similar systems.
