    You could try cascading style sheets (as we have done), but you'll probably
    run into cross-browser issues unless the report is _extremely_ simple.
    We're moving towards creating RTFs on the fly.

    Actually, we're using ASP with server-side VBscript. We've
    reverse-engineered the standard formats for our reports to get the RTF
    code -- so we just plug in the data where it belongs, write it out to a file
    with Software Artisans' File Manager (can't use FSO because we've got
    images), and redirect to it.
