Theoretically, the RTF file would allow CVS to perform its usual merging

enough for it to actually work well.

We use the RTF format of MS Word with CVS frequently and haven't had any particular issues with it. CVS versions the documents just like you would expect - on the Macintoshes (pre Mac OSX), the files do lose their creator types and the users simply have to remember that they can't double click on them from the Finder - opening MS Word and then opening the files from within works like a charm - no problems for us.

hope this helps.
