RTF file format

RTF is a text file format used by Microsoft products, such as Word and Office. RTF, or Rich Text Format, files were developed by Microsoft in 1987 for use in their products and for cross-platform document interchange. RTF is readable by most word processors. RTF files support text style formatting, as well as images within the text. RTF files can be converted into a different format by changing the formatting selection when saving the word document.

MIME: application/rtf, application/x-rtf, text/rtf, text/richtext, application/msword, application/doc, application/x-soffice
