A few times. I can't remember whether I ever saw some similarity  
between the PDF and the RTF output. I often liked to claim that it's  
(only) the RTF viewer ...

BTW, here is the set of fonts latex2rtf 1.9.16a supports:

	{\fonttbl{\f3\fnil\fcharset0 Zapf Chancery;}
	{\f4\fnil\fcharset204 Zapf Chancery;}
	{\f5\fnil\fcharset204 Times;}
	{\f6\fnil\fcharset204 Helvetica;}
	{\f7\fnil\fcharset204 Helvetica;}
	{\f8\fnil\fcharset204 Courier;}
	{\f9\fnil\fcharset2 Symbol;}
	{\f10\fnil\fcharset0 MT Extra;}
	{\f11\fnil\fcharset238 Zapf Chancery;}
	{\f12\fnil\fcharset238 Times;}
	{\f13\fnil\fcharset238 Helvetica;}
	{\f14\fnil\fcharset238 Helvetica;}
	{\f15\fnil\fcharset238 Courier;}
	{\f16\fnil\fcharset0 Times;}
	{\f17\fnil\fcharset0 Book Antiqua;}
	{\f18\fnil\fcharset0 Bookman Old Style;}
	{\f19\fnil\fcharset0 Century Gothic;}
	{\f20\fnil\fcharset0 New Century Schoolbook;}
	{\f21\fnil\fcharset0 Helvetica;}
	{\f22\fnil\fcharset0 Helvetica;}
	{\f23\fnil\fcharset0 Courier;}

Although the RTF format has some Unicode support, latex2rtf does not  
support it. It tries to reduce any TeX input encoding to


for which it is useful to invoke latex2rtf with

	-C <codepage> -i <language>

8 bit characters are translated to \'<2 hex numbers>.
