RTF files are very unlikely to contain a virus. They only have text in
them. If anyone uploads a file with an RTF extension masquerading as an RTF
but  really something else containing a virus, hopefully either Word or
your virus checker will catch it.

I opened it, Jim. I had a hard time believing the file was infected and I
don't think it was. I think Verizon's version of Norton was just giving me
a difficult time.

It did make me wonder, later, though, if Bookshare scans the uploads for a
virus. It seems like a malicious person could really do some damage.
