Is there a program which can read and colour code Rtf code in its text editor? Notepad++ supports the coloring of many languages such as C++ or Javascript, but Rtf isn't supported (it's not exactly a language, but even so).

This one's a tricky one to research because a search in Google for "Rtf editor" will return editors which save to that format, rather than work with it in its raw code-like form.

vim supports syntax highlighting for.rtf files. It's available on quite a few platforms, including Windows.

Thanks! I tried it, and although text is distinguished, all the control words are the same colour (only 2-3 colours total). Maybe there's something better... – Dan W Jan 12 '12 at 11:16
@DanW Last time I checked, language elements of the same type (type names, keywords, etc.) are colored the same way in most editors. – Daniel Beck Jan 12 '12 at 11:38
