We're moving away from the original point here.
Customers often come with Word documents, sometimes WordPerfect docs. 
It would save lots of time and effort if bold/italic, font and font size
(with a possible font substitution first) could be retained while
importing the text in the DTP program.

No problem if those Word/WP documents first have to be converted into
any format they can be converted to.
