The answer to your q is no, RTF only supports raw ASCII and a subset of RTF files as generated by, say, Word.

RTF is a different format to DOC. You will need to find another OCX for DOC's or find some *undocumentated* source for the Microsoft Word's file format. Best get an OCX.

In fact i think Delphi 5 comes with an integral OCX to do this!
