This is probably a simple question, but I don't know how to do this. I am
trying to do the newsletter (pro bono) for my daughter's school. The person
who has been doing it, sent me a template. But I can't figure out how to
open it. He is using Windows, I am using a Mac. And I download everything
to my desktop through Outlook Express. when i double-click on the file, i
get the msg that it can't be opened because the application program that
created it can't be found.

What do I use to open it?

Below are the comments he forwarded to me.
