How are we supposed to know how to do this?
It says in the description of the exercise how to do this: Use the RichTextBox control's LoadFile and SaveFile methods.

Those methods are summarized in Table 7-3 on page 82. There's a code snippet that demonstrates LoadFile on the bottom of page 82 and there's another snippet that demonstrates SaveFile in the middle pf page 84.

Not sure where you covered something like StreamType:
The Typing Tips sidebar on pages 83 - 84 talks about the stream type parameter. It basically tells the LoadFile method what kind of file it will be loading.
