Importing an RTF file

Since I don't have control of the original file are you suggesting that I
load the rtf file into a variable and start trying to strip out the
offending tags then set the remaining RTF to a field? I am assuming that
RTF has tags similar to html
I do not need to keep any of the formatting as I am only interested in the
raw text content of the document. I guess that I am going to be forced to
learn the details of RTF

try resaving the document as RTF from Word.
Other wise, remove any non-text or extra styles.
Break down the problem: try importing half of the file and
see which one fails...
hope that helps!
