In that case you have little choice but to write it yourself. I would
suggest a modular approach: A parser with hooks, and a renderer which
uses the parser. The parser could go in the FCL.

If it's any help: The FCL contains a RTF reader which I ported some
years ago. I wrote a RTF panel that displayed the RTF to go with it
(based on TLabel and TCanvas, so that should port easily). If need be
I can dig up the code and send that, you can have a look at it for starters.

Come to think of it, having the RTF panel may be a good idea in itself
for Lazarus.
