XHTML is not supported (this is not HTML), it is in plans.

TRichView directly supports only export.

SaveHTML uses HTML 3 standard (no CSS)

SaveHTMLEx uses HTML 4 standard (with CSS)

HTML import can be done using TRVHTMLImporter, supporting a subset of HTML 3

standard. It does not support CSS import.

HTML operations are considered as import and export operations.

JavaScript is not supported

They are exported as RTF hyperlinks (understandable by MS Word and other RTF
