The Quark plugin does work for Q4. I'm in talks with Quark at the moment
to see if the code can be legalling incorporated into Scribus and I'm
quite hopefull that I'll get an okay on that. Having the Quark code as
part of the main source disto would help in maintaining it (it would be
officially supported)

I'd rather wait to see what Quark says.

Correct. It is a well documented format, but has never been formally
standardised so there is nothing to say that an RTF from OOo will work
in WordXP and vice versa.



The world is throwing away oppressive regimes
Which don't allow people to choose.
Wars are fought to topple these people.
Yet the folks who do this, still use Windows.
Double standards or not understanding why they did it?
