Thanks Chris, I will take a look at ISV. I think I have both RTF and 
HTML options open to me, but I'm still learning Cocoa so I'm not 
entirely sure. I could parse the HTML myself if necessary though.

Images would be nice, but kind of throw my design a bit. I think they 
belong in a separate window from the main text stream... so then it 
would be necessary to parse the HTML anyway, as opposed to just 
dumping it all in a window.
