In its original conception, the .rtf format was a specification for formatting text and graphics principally designed to facilitate the interoperability of documents and text between Microsoft document processing applications. It eliminated the need for specialized translation software required to open documents in different versions of MS-DOS, Windows, and Macintosh. The specification is a proprietary filename format first developed by Microsoft in 1987 to be supported in Microsoft word 3.0 and all versions of Microsoft Office Word thereof. The latest revision, version 1.9.1, was released in 2008 and also marked the end of any further enhancements to the specification by Microsoft. Through unformatted text, control words, control symbols, and groups, a piece of text can be encoded into an .rtf format. All RTF readers then process .rtf formats by separating and acting on control information disparately from the actual text in the document. Though the RTF specification is proprietary asset of Microsoft, several non-Microsoft programs support both reading .rtf documents and creating .rtf. Microsoft Office Suite is still however the most dominant application associated with this specification.
The Open Document Text filename extension format is an alternative open source document and text processing file format allowing users to create text documents that can be opened and edited by an extensive list of document processing applications. Both proprietary applications (such as in Microsoft Office word) and open source document processing applications (such as OpenOffice) support the .odt filename extension allowing for interoperability between software systems. The format is useful to those creating documents meant to target a wide audience and not necessarily an audience with a specific document processing suite. The extension was first released in 2005.
