You're right. The problem with the /text/fmt/xp classes in the export to
RTF classes is objeying the RTF rules for fields. Many fields in the RTF
export require calculating some some text which is not in the piecetable.
In order to correctly export to RTF we have to calculate those values and
place them inside the exprted RTF. I really did not like doing this but
the alternative is to duplicate a large amount of code in the impexp/xp
