The RTF specification is available as download from MS, I
think. Finding images in Jade's output is trivial. Btw., no size
information can be attached to the field code wich is used to embed
the images into RTF by Jade.

Just FYI: We have a specification document in DocBook containing
several diagrams. The RTF output from Jade is about 2.5MB, updating
the images and saving it results in about 500MB, saving it as ".doc"
yields about 10MB, just the size you'd get if you add the size of the
JPG-images. I think there are no compressed image formats available in
