I suggest you perform a web index search on RTF file sizing. Bitter
experience of file conversions in Word tells me that there are often
redundant style commands in the output file. I suspect the RTF control
codes are repeated far more often than they need to be, which will inflate
the file size.
There may be utilities that will identify repeated and redundant control
codes, and can strip some or all of them.

Subject: RTF File Size
In using RTF as my ODS destination, I found that the resultant can be
quite large at times.
I wonder if we have some control (like PDF COMPRESS) to trim down the
size of the resultant RTF file.
Sometimes, the file can be shrinked a bit sometimes if it's opened in
WORD and then saved as a DOC. Maybe it is just coincidence.
