What makes it even trickier, is that a user can turn on/off the TextEdit 
preferences to "ignore rich text commands in RTF files" (or HTML files). 
If you were giong to use TextEdit as a complementary app to a Rev app, you 
may want to look at the "com.apple.TextEdit.plist" file to see what those 
settings are.

I suspect all this OS X stuff I'm doing is useless because you seem to
be more concerned about Wordpad but I thought I'd add this data point.

If I format the text in the field and then save it in an RTF file, Word
recognizes the styling, it shows up in the raw RTF in BBEdit, but
Apple's TextEdit, which is the default RTF reader in OS X) ignores the
styling. The text shows up in the default RTF font but not styled.
