Ted and GTK2
I've always thought that Ted was quite a good

wordprocessor: it is fast and its handling of the RTF

format is almost perfect. However, many users (rightly)

complain that Ted, which is Motif-based, looks odd on a

modern desktop. There are good news for them: as of

version 2.16, you can successfully compile Ted with

GTK2. It looks much better now!

printing ISO Latin2 characters

There are scripts for printing ISO Latin 2 characters (derived from ogonkify) and for correctly set "codepage" command in some rtf files.

Re: "X Windows"? Oh please..
Oh ,come on, is that really so important?

This (at first glance) is a really good piece of software!

I just got and installed Ted because a collegue of mine had this 24MB-RTF file that crashed her Word for Windows.

It also crashed Star Office, maxwell and Hancom Word.

But it displayd most beautifully with Ted, with all the horrible graphics & tables etc. And rather fast, too!

I must say, I am very impressed. Thank you for this remarkable work. I really look forward to explore Ted further. :-))
