Okay, I hope this question doesn't expose me to a lot of ridicule (although
that's never stopped me before). Here's the problem. I wrote my thesis
on in Word on a Macintosh Classic. I've got copies of it, and I'm still able to
print it off if I need to. However, since I use a PC now, I'd much rather have
a copy that I can manipulate on that platform. I've been wanting to work over
some sections for publication and would really much rather send something
formatted in Frame than in Word.

Now that I'm aware of the limitations of some programs, I'm pretty amazed
that I actually finished my thesis without a lot of agravation (or lamentation).
Of course, now I'm also aware that Aldus PageMaker doesn't really belong on a
Classic with 4 Megs of DRAM.

Any suggestions on how to swap these files between platforms?
