    This format is also that of Microsoft Rich Text Format (RTF) used by MS
    Considering the fcointext, I would think that is more likely.

    Woo woo.  Somebody tried to send TeX/LaTeX formatted text.
    I think the equiv HTML would be:
    <center>Create a new file.</center>
    The new command ``Scan Text'' has been added to the ``File'' menu.
    <p><font size=+1>C. Excel 2000 (Office 2000) and Excel 97 (Office
    <p>Start Excel.
    Might want to touch base with the person who sent it - I've almost NEVER
    seen LaTeX used for announcements like that.  I'd *expect* to see it in
    an attachment, carrying the source for a manual or the like...
