Printing RTF Headers/Footer

I am using MFC's CRichEditView, CRichEditDoc, etc., to read, display and print an RTF file.  The RTF file contains header and footer controls and the default MFC classes do not appear to give you any access to these.  What would be the best method to handle the headers and footers of the RTF file to use for printing/print preview.

MFC doesn't give you access to the header and footer because they're not supported by the underlying rich edit control. That is, Windows itself doesn't support RTF headers and footers in the control.

Your only recourse is to parse the RTF yourself and display it as you wish when printing. You can still let the rich edit control handle the rest of the output.

I had been afraid of that and started down the path of implementing it myself, but I thought asking the question couldn't hurt...
