I don't know where the problem exactly is but representation of those
characters in RTF is fairly clear and Rev should be able to map them
properly onto the character set currently used. From Bruce's
description sounds like some mapping is done wrong. Having such
characters correctly remapped is one of the advantages of using RTF
(and the main reason I use RTF -- but I go the other direction and do
my own mapping). It is not rock science (just table lookup really). I
suspect an incomplete implementation or a bug. You should bugzilla
