I just tried that, and it worked for me too. It was able to retain the page breaks at the beginning of each chapter, whereas saving it as a txt and converting that lost the page breaks. It also retained basic font styles, such as italicizing the opening poem.
But, it seems to have added extra space between the paragraphs that was not there in the rtf. This occurred in Open Office, so this is not exactly a Calibre question, but is there something I need to do to tell Open Office not to add space, like you do in Word?
Update: Found the "remove space between paragraphs" option in Calibre. All better.
