I gave this a try and for _very_ simple documents this gives actually 
quite nice results, math formulas look great and included pictures are 
especially nice. The thing is that I make use of quite a few extra 
packages and also my own macros basically none of which are working. 
When I translated one of my real documents I got about a gazillion 
warnings and the resulting .rtf wouldn't open in Word nor in Textedit.

So, thanks for the tip but I guess, latex2rtf is not for me.

	Bye, Thomas
