ScroogeXHTML is a library which can convert a subset of the RTF standard to XHTML and HTML.

It converts text attributes including background and highlight colors, paragraph attributes including alignment (left, right, centered, justified) and paragraph indent (left, right, first line) and simple numbered or unnumbered lists.

Unicode conversion allows multi-language documents, including simplified and traditional Chinese, Korean and Japanese.

CSS and default font settings instead of in-place formatting help to create optimized documents.


The library supports a limited subset of the RTF standard. If you are unsure about support for a specific conversion feature, please contact us. Some of the document elements which will not be converted are:

  • Tables
  • Tabulators (a tab character will be replaced by a sequence of non breaking spaces)
  • Non-alphabetic characters in the "Symbol" font
  • Unicode font names, and font names which contain a semicolon

Embedded images

Basic support for the extraction of raw data of embedded images is included. Conversion of the binary data to a web-ready format (e.g., PNG or JPG) requires third-party libraries. Habarisoft can not give recommendations for specific graphic libraries.


With a throughput of up to several MB per second, ScroogeXHTML is one of the fastest solutions available.
