question about this(XML to RTF), it always seemed to me like it would be
either a faulty process to do this, or a process intensive one when one
takes into account the necessity to handle details in your text nodes
that on output could be interpreted as RTF formatting commands. 
So the question is: Did you indeed find it to be  either faulty(by not
handling these details), process intensive(by handling these details),
neither of the above because you in some way structured your markup or
pre-processed it so as to remove this problem, or four not an actual
problem because the chance of such a thing occurring was negligible?

If four can you tell me how often the RTF conversion is used, types of
documents used with etc.

Sorry to be nosy it's just I've thought about doing this before it's
just I didn't think it realistic to try.
