    Is there a way to change the default in Text Edit to some

    thing other than RTF?

    From Preferences > New Document you can set it to plain text.

    If you insert graphics the default will change from RTF to RTFD
    Saving in TextEdit is a different matter as you have many choices
    Word 97 .doc
    Word 2003 .XML
    Word 2007 .docx
    OpenDocument Text .odt
    TXT / RTF / RTFD / HTML & Web Archive.

    Right. What I was hoping to do is change the default to Word 97.doc. When I'm saving documents I often forget to change it to that from RTF.
