    Do you mean 1.8 MB? 1.8K is nothing!

    Do your students still use diskettes? They could zip the .rtf file and copy the zip file to diskette.

    RTF is a plain text format in which both the contents of the document and all meta-information is stored as ASCII text. Most newsletters contain graphical elements and pictures. Converting graphics to ASCII text takes up much more space than the graphics themselves.

    Large RTF (2K)

    Changed RTK in subject to RTF - HansV

    I teach at Thames Valley University and we have an assignment in Word which requires a student to create and save a Newsletter as a *.doc. No probelem here, the *.doc finishes up at 294K.
    The student is then required to resave the document as an RTF.
    This RTF finishes up at 1.8K and will not fit on the students disc. Why the bloated size of the RTF for what is effectively the same document?
