Thanks for many input, although I do not (yet) care about the fragile 
commands discussion:
I spent more than one hour cleaning up TEX code after having used 
Abiword's export to Latex format for some odd 8 pages of a .doc file. 
The two pictures of the document did not convert... That is all right 
for a beginner, but I would not like to do it for many more documents.
Are the mentioned packages wvware or rtf2latex2e doing a better job? How 
do I access them after having i-installed them?
