I have been working with an allied problem: XML tables into Framemaker.

(Have a solution that seems to work fairly well - I'll post the details 
when I verify it all the way through again. It will also work on other XML 
files with minor tweaking of a conversion to HTML script.)

It was suggested that I use the Japanese RTF file converter to take my Word 
RTF output and oddly it chokes every time but the plain Windows one doesn't.

I don't get it myself.  Anybody have more clues?
