    Article: ReportBuilder's RichText architecture

    The RichText in ReportBuilder is a wrapper around Delphi's TRichEdit which
    in turn relies on Windows. There are two versions of Windows richedit -
    RichEd32.dll is the older one and RichEd20.dll is a newer one (RichEd32 is
    being phased out). Delphi by default relies on RichEd32 - the older version.
    To use some of the more advanced features of Windows RichEdit, see the topic
    on InfoPower RichEdit Support below.

    In general Windows RichEdit supports the type of formatting that you can do
    using WordPad.

    InfoPower RichEdit Support
    InfoPower from Woll2Woll Software is a popular database add-on product for
    Delphi. InfoPower's TwwRichEdit components support the Windows RichEdit2
    format. This format allows the rich text data to contain embedded bitmaps
    and OLE objects. For more information please see http:\\www.Woll2Woll.com.

    ReportBuilder includes a component that enables the TppRichText and
    TppDBRichText controls in ReportBuilder to use the formatting capabilities
    of InfoPower's TwwRichEdit when rendering RTF data. The ppWWRichEd.pas unit
    located in the ..\RBuilder\InfoPower directory defines a TwwDBRichEdit
    descendant and then registers the class with ReportBuilder. This enables the
    TppRichText and TppDBRichText controls in ReportBuilder to use the
    formatting capabilities of TwwDBRichEidt when rendering data.

    WPTools Support
    WPTools is a collection of components used to edit and print formatted text.
    With its own RTF engine, WPTools offers numerous features not supported by
    the standard Windows RichEd20.dll. This control lets you use tables,
    paragraph frames, headers and footers etc. Using the optional ReportBuilder
    support units for WPTools 2.x, you can print the enhanced WPTools features
    (justified text, tables, graphics...) within your ReportBuilder reports. For
    more information please see http:\\www.wptools.de.
