Good morning everyone!

In order to improve the output quality of BOXSHADE and some other molbio-
software i need to know the following facts:

- Which of the more common word processing programs can import RTF-files?
  I know that Microsoft products usually do, but what about WORD PERFECT,
  AMI-PRO and so on. Are there word processors in the UNIX or VMS world that 
  can deal with RTF? (btw, RTF means 'RICH TEXT FILE FORMAT')

- Are there other programs than word processors which are able to use
  RTF in some way (presentation software, spreadsheets, graphics) ?

- Are there any word processors  (PC/Mac/Unix/VMS) that are capable to give
  any character an individual background color?

Many thanks in advance,
