I, personally use Word to do my .RTF validating, but in my previous 
message to Cindy4, though I had had the file opened in Word before I 
tried to transfer it, this didn't make any difference. So I'm curious 
myself.

Cindy4:

Open your document in word, save it as a word 2000 rtf document,
transfer the saved file back to your braille note & try opening it
again.  U need to understand a couple things, though:
a) it's gonna wanna save the doc as a keynote file--if u let it,
you'll need to export it back to rtf;
b) It might mess up page breaks so check back in word to ensure your
page breaks are ok;
c) Sometimes if u have ntfs file system on your computer, & your sd or
compact flash card is formatted as fat, the file won't be seen--simply
pressing alt enter on the file in windows explorer & unchecking the
archive attribute can solve that.

Let me know whether this helps.  Happy 2k8.
