OpenOffice/LibreOffice headless mode is pretty cool. We used it often

I didn't mean to use the tiRtfReporter.pas unit as a reporting engine. I
meant, you can cannibalise the code and grab what you need to suite your
needs (translate RTF files into fcl-pdf API calls to render the text in
a rich text manner when producing the PDF).

That's pretty much what I meant with the tiOPF code. I guess either one
will do.
