The following terms are specific to this document:

de-encapsulating RTF reader: A Rich Text Format (RTF) reader, as described in [MSFT-RTF], that recognizes if an input RTF document contains encapsulated HTML or plain text, and extracts and renders the original HTML or plain text instead of the encapsulating RTF content.

encapsulating RTF writer: A Rich Text Format (RTF) writer, as described in [MSFT-RTF], that produces an RTF document as a result of format conversion from other formats, such as plain text or HTML, and also stores the original document in a form that allows for subsequent retrieval.

format conversion: A process that converts a text document from one text format, such as Rich Text Format (RTF), HTML, or plain text, to another text format. The result of text conversion is typically a new document that is an approximate rendering of the same information.

rendering position: A location in a Rich Text Format (RTF) document where an attachment is placed visually.

MAY, SHOULD, MUST, SHOULD NOT, MUST NOT: These terms (in all caps) are used as described in [RFC2119]. All statements of optional behavior use either MAY, SHOULD, or SHOULD NOT.
