"RichView is a suite of native Delphi/C++Builder components for displaying, editing (not demonstrated by demo/not in freeware version*) and printing hypertext documents. Components support various character attributes (fonts, subscripts/superscripts, colored text background, custom drawn)." This package contains a port of the freeware version.

 * Shareware version (as stated in lazrichview- demo project)
 The development of freeware version was stopped in 1999.
 This update was made for Delphi 5 and C++Builder 5 compatibility.
 Newer (shareware) version includes editor, data-aware versions, component for print preview, works with Unicode, supports HTML-style tables.
 Contents can have much more complicated formatting - left, center, right and justify alignments, subscripts/superscripts, paragraph backgrounds and more.
 Literally all actions of free version are performed in much faster and convenient way with shareware version.
