If you've created the RTF in Rev then export and then import should be

It's in the Docs.
Setting the RTFText of a field (or a chunk of a field) sets both the text
contents and the font, size, style, and color attributes corresponding to
the information in the RTFString. Any other formatting controls in the
RTFstring are ignored.
The RTFText property interprets the following RTF formatting controls:
Colors: \cf, \colortbl, \red, \green, \blue, \highlight
Styles: \plain, \b, \i, \ul, \ulnon, \strike, \dn, \up
Font and character set: \fcharset, \ansi, \mac, \pc, \pca, \u, \fonttbl,
Others: \header, \par, \line, \tab
If that cover's 99% of your situations, then great. If it only covers 50% I
guess you need another solution.
