Converts RTF files into a generic XML format

'rtfx' converts RTF files into a generic XML format. It focuses on keeping metadata such as style names rather than every bit of formatting. This makes it handy for converting RTF documents into a custom XML format (using XSL or an additional processing step). The package currently supports the following features: page breaks, section breaks, style names, lists (various types), tables, info block, bold, italic, underline, hidden text, strike out, and text color. This package was formerly known as 'rtfm', but was changed due to a naming conflict.
