Rich Text Format, or RTF, is the internal markup language used by Microsoft Word and understood by dozens of other word processors. RTF is a universal file format that pervades practically every desktop. Because RTF is text, it's much easier to generate and process than binary .doc files. Any programmer working with word processing documents needs to learn enough RTF to get around, whether it's to format text for Word (or almost any other word processor), to make global changes to an existing document, or to convert Word files to (or from) another format.

Rule of Law in Afghanistan -- Time for a New Approach?( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The thesis of this paper is that current Rule of Law initiatives in Afghanistan are fractured and ineffective; a comprehensive program of new initiatives is required to craft and deliver sustainable reform. This paper argues that organizational self-interest, the absence of unity of effort, and, most importantly, the failure of Western nations to accept unity of command have all retarded progress on Rule of Law. The lack of advancement across all Rule of Law sectors is primarily a result of Western indecision, conflicting strategies, and parochial national agendas. The subsequent problems facing donor nations, organizations, and coalition partners have stemmed from a lack of consensus in strategic direction. International approaches continue to differ even amongst the closest of allies, particularly with regard to strategy and operational direction in the counternarcotics sector. Debate continues over the strategic way forward in areas of strategic leadership, international or Afghan primacy, and "top-down" or "bottom-up" reform. Conflicting strategic thought exacerbates the debate over policy and focus of effort, in particular whether efforts should be directed at short-term or long-term initiatives. Additional differences exist over whether to train the military or the police, and whether to implement a troop surge or a political, diplomatic, and informational surge. The author argues that conflicting policy initiatives, corruption, and failures in both military and International strategies have led to a failed Rule of Law. He concludes that it is time for a new approach to Rule of Law in Afghanistan. He recommends the establishment of a single overarching body under a single super envoy to oversee the Rule of Law in Afghanistan
