yes, its fine for some classes of document, but for others its simply

me. we got as far as we have in tables by me specifying to Kathleen
what the output should be. whats needed now is extensive examination
to see what *should* come out in the .tex file. Maybe David
Megginson's entire TeX backend needs to be thrown away and start
again. SOmetimes I think that would be best

maybe we should make TeX process the RTF....? may not be that hard
