How I chose Rich Text Format as my for-now de facto (WordPress, is that not a word(s)?) file format, for writing things, like this thing.
In the end, I like the evocative idea of writing Rich Text, and also, I’ve now got OpenOffice’s pleasing blue icon associated with everything .rtf. An aesthetically chosen principle, purely.
There were earlier investigations, experiments, and concerns related to the decision… but they are no longer relevant.
