To go this route (save the results as an RTF file), you need:

(1) read the results with a Windows word processor
(2) have the Sgreek font

Number (2) can be accomplished by downloading the Silver Fonts Shareware
($20) package from our web site.

The TLG Workplace can save results in WP DOS 5.1 format by using the
special utility which writes the Windows clipboard to a WP DOS file
(CBTOWP.EXE), but for a large result file, this is a tedious process at best!
