Rtf file size comparision

Recently, I was experimenting with rtf files. I found something really interesting. An rtf file containing 14 unformatted character created in Microsoft Word turned out to be around 30 kb in size, while an rtf file containing 54 formatted chars created in OpenOffice was only 2kb in size.

I was doubting Microsoft when I read the following line in the rtf specification v1.0:
"All styles in the document's style sheet can be included, even if not all the styles are used." However, when I actually tested them, I found their software to be producing even larger files than I expected.
