The problem is the way that text attributes are maintained in Rev vs. how
they're exported. If the *field* has text attributes assigned, it looks like
they don't export to RTF. But if the *text* has text attributes assigned and
the *field* doesn't, you get the styling in the RTF.

Try changing:

  set the textFont of fld "RTF Text" to ...
  set the textSize of fld "RTF Text" to ...

to 

  set the textFont of char 1 to -1 of fld "RTF Text" to...
  set the textSize of char 1 to -1 of fld "RTF Text" to...

You may need to clear the field-based attributes before it outputs properly
(set the textfFont of fld "RTF Text" to empty), etc.
