Not exactly; if you ship HTML (or XML, for that matter) with embedded
style attributes designed for a VGA display, then the computer driving
the LCD panel on a gas pump or cell phone can simply ignore the style
attributes and start over with what it can figure out from the tags
themselves.  It couldn't do that with RTF, unless you mean RTF with
meaningful style names.
