RTF. (#*&$(# RTF. And Standard Manuscript Format

Okay, so I probably should have gone the arcane binary format "doc" instead of (once again) diving into RTF. This is the first time I went with purpose, and OMFG. Just. Dude. So. "Standard Manuscript Format".

I made this:


{\rtf1\ansi{\fonttbl{\f0\fnil FONT;}}

{\colortbl ;\red0\green0\blue0;\red255\green255\blue255;}

That's the template for Standard Manuscript Format. Yesyes. You can put your own stories in it by pasting plain text over at http://www.erif.org/manuscript/
