Check out "Ace" from RMIT in Melbourne, Australia. Freely downloadable at http://ace.mds.rmit.edu.au/adl. Ace can convert RTF and does a lot more.
To convert RTF to SGML in Ace:
String bufRTF := readFile(rtfFile);
String bufSGML := bufRTF.rtfToSgml();
Then you can stream through the SGML, to modify and insert tags as you wish. Can also create an in-memory parse tree. You can choose to parse as SGML or XML.
