Interesting... I'm facing a similar situation, as are others. I was
looking at using some form of html, possibly with lynx, but I never
got very far in researching it. What have you learned? What client
are you using, and how did you go about setting it up?

One problem I'm going to run into is that I'm using Framemaker 3, which
doesn't save to RTF format, although there may be a filter out there to
do the job.
