Subject Re: Problems transforming to RTF
Date Wed, 09 Jul 2008 14:31:28 GMT
I've tried attaching the fo again.

All I want to do is a simple document.  It has some text, a simple list and
a simple table.  At present I have no option other than RTF - unless I go
back and say that it can't be done...
