The Weird and The Wonderful


The Weird and The Wonderful forum is a place to post Coding Horrors, Worst Practices, and the occasional flash of brilliance.

We all come across code that simply boggles the mind. Lazy kludges, embarrasing mistakes, horrid workarounds and developers just not quite getting it. And then somedays we come across - or write - the truly sublime.

Post your Best, your worst, and your most interesting. But please - no programming questions . This forum is purely for amusement and discussions on code snippets. All actual programming questions will be removed.

I'm not certain, but suspect it is due to the fact that an RTF document contains various sections in addition to the formatting codes needed. Here's one version of the spec: RTF 1.7[^] (not the latest, but most should be similar).

A bit like copying HTML to clipboard - if just the markup is copied, other information supplied in the header section may be omitted, so styles etc. wouldn't work correctly. The SelectedText may contain just enough of these for the selection, while the Rtf property will, presumably, include all those in the entire RTF "document" including standard "document level" header sections (a bit like the <head> section in HTML).
