re: Linda's question: "Are Word for Windows documents compatible
with Word for the Mac?"

Theoretically, yes, but.....

Save your file in the Word for the Mac format on a Mac-compatible disk and then
open it on the Mac. Keep in mind that not all of formatting is supported. There
should be a conversion file somewhere on the original Word diskettes that
details what formatting is and isn't supported in the conversion. Fonts are
likely to change and even if you have the same fonts on both machines, the
character metrics aren't identical between the two formats.

Hope this helps.

In other words,
if I create a Word for Windows document
on my PC, transfer the disk to a Mac
disk, and open it in Word for the Mac,
will it have all the formatting and
text intact?
