Re: Status of RTF format?

In order to comply with WCAG there need to be various things included, like
text alternatives for non-text objects, markup to specify the language of
things, that they are abbreviations, a seperation of presentation information
from content, and so on.

Some of these things can be achieved in RTF, some I don't believe can, and in
some cases there is a huge gulf between can and routinely are.

I don't know that there is a consensus in the group (unless everyone agrees
with me <grin/>) - what would you suggest it should be?
