Yes. The easiest way to demonstrate this is to make a small table in word and then copy and paste it into your richtextbox. You can then look at the .Rtf member to see the rtf.

Easier said than done--been there, done that, got the T-shirt, wore it out ;)

I don't get it? What is ESTD? Using RTF? Or making RTF tables? Thank heavens there's new t-shirts every six months or so! :-)

The RTF specification is very complicated when it comes to creating tables, so I just say good luck to anyone that wishes to go down that path.  I haven't seen a new T-shirt for RTF in years.

Ah. Hopefully your advice will save him some time and trouble. And to save *you* some time and trouble (frantically scouring the internet and your favorite retail outlets):  I didn't mean to say that there were new RTF t-shirts out there, just that there are new "standards" every six months and they usually arrive with t-shirts! :-)

Understood ;)  There isn't a lot of useful information and resources when working with RTF, so it takes a lot of scraping and trying and failing to find a solution.
