IS it possible to open the doc like text and html which renders the information and open ups directly without downloading the document.

I think that is the default behavior for text files.
One caveat is that RTC may not recognize the file as a text file in which case it you will need to download it.
What version of RTC are you working with?

Here's an example of a properties file

Example of non text

Thanks for information Karl,

its RTC 4.0.4 and how about the html file its also non-text file ?

Can it be a RFE ?

Hi Arun,
I think most html files are uploaded as plain text by default.
To be a little clearer, non-text only means what RTC thinks the file is.
RTC uses a combination of things to determine the file type including the first few lines of the file along with the extension. If it is not sure it is a text file it will create it as content type unknown.  For example the file in second screen shot I attached can be opened in a text editor when downloaded. 
If you have files with the wrong content time they can be changed to text/plain by loading them into a workspace in eclipse, then right click, choose properties, and set the file type manually under the jazz properties.

And I don't think there are any restrictions on opening RFEs
