|Rich Text Format (RTF) is a file
that lets you exchange text
files between different word
processors in different operating
systems. For example, you can create a file using Microsoft Word , save it as an RTF file (it will have an ".rtf" file name suffix), and someone using a Mac, or different word processor will be able to open it.
In addition, when sending a graphic
or photo do not place it in your document when saving RTF. Rich Text Format
and images do not mix. They cause the file to get ridiculously large. You will
need to send your graphic or image as a separate attachment when "saving
as" RTF. Large files will not attach to emails. Most email "boxes"
will only allow a 1 megabyte attachment.
