Hi All,
I am trying to convert xhtml to rtf and there are few strategies possible:
1. Convert xhtml to xsl:fo using xhtml2fo.xsl stylesheet and then convert the fo to rtf using a library(like by mindspan)
THE ISSUE I have is that the xsl(part of antennahouse documentation) is still for a small subset of xhtml and the conversion to fo leaves a lot to be desired( font sizes, style, etc). Secondly the xsl implementation has performance impact.
2. Use a api (such as itext) to convert xhtml to rtf. The api is also incomplete.
3. Use a SAX parser to convert the xhtml to fo, which can be quite cumbersome.
I don't see a real clean solution. If you have worked on conversions of xhtml to rtf and pdf, please share your thoughts.

I will suppress my every urge. But not this shameless plug:
RavenDB is an Open Source NoSQL Database that’s fully transactional (ACID) across your database
