Hi Ron,

Funny that you should mention RunRev 2.0 in this post,
as that version will sport a new 'RTFText' property
for its fields.
And then it will be a piece of cake:

on mouseUp
  answer file "Select RTF file to convert"
  if the result is "Cancel" then exit mouseUp
  put it into tFile
  set the RTFText of fld "Converter" to URL \
    ("file:" & tFile)
  ask file "Save as HTML file"
  if the result is "Cancel" then exit mouseUp
  put it into tFile
  put "<HTML>" & return & "<BODY>" & return & \
    (the HTMLText of fld "Converter") & \
    return & "</BODY>" & return & "</HTML>" \
    into URL ("file:" & tFile)
end mouseUp

Admittedly that's not an answer you can use right
away, but if you can wait, this will come in handy.

Best regards,

Jan Schenkel.
