Editing Formatted Text

   "Enriched mode" is a minor mode for editing files that contain
formatted text in WYSIWYG fashion, as in a word processor.  Currently,
formatted text in Enriched mode can specify fonts, colors, underlining,
margins, and types of filling and justification.  In the future, we plan
to implement other formatting features as well.

   Enriched mode is a minor mode (Note: Minor Modes).  It is
typically used in conjunction with Text mode (Note: Text Mode), but
you can also use it with other major modes such as Outline mode and
Paragraph-Indent Text mode.

   Potentially, Emacs can store formatted text files in various file
formats.  Currently, only one format is implemented: "text/enriched"
format, which is defined by the MIME protocol.  Note: Format
Conversion, for details of how Emacs
recognizes and converts file formats.

   The Emacs distribution contains a formatted text file that can serve
as an example.  Its name is `etc/enriched.doc'.  It contains samples
illustrating all the features described in this section.  It also
contains a list of ideas for future enhancements.
