It is possible to convert word docs or rtf docs to PDF but your must have word or libre office installed on the ColdFusion server to do so. http://help.adobe.com/en_US/ColdFusion/9.0/Developing/WS692D73AF-6338-495d-9E47-C2ECD8BF9 307.html But as far as showing a rtf file inline *inside* a browser I haven't seen that successfully done.
Welp, that's me out, then. I can install Word on my dev system, but not on production. Ah, well. Thanks for the info, Tim.
I thought I had seen a post on some other forum, somewhere, suggesting that the rtf could be converted to XML, then parsed into HTML from that.
Anyone know how to convert rtf to xml?? Not wanting to give up, y'know.
The RTF spec is public: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=10725, so you can just do it yourself.
Or I just googled "convert RTF to XML" and got really a lot of results. Which ones of those did you look at?
I'll look at the spec, thank you.
ColdFusion "convert rtf to xml"
"convert rtf to xml"
ColdFusion "display rtf inline"
... and a few others that I'm not recalling, right now. Most of the links I found (99%) were for "FREE SOFTWARE DOWNLOAD", which I can't go anywhere near.
One of the links was to a forum where someone mentioned what I posted, earlier, about converting to XML, then using some built-in CF XML tag to parse. Can't find it, now, though.
