You can use Apple File Exchange which comes with the Mac OS to translate
files between Mac and PC formats. Word files are directly transportable
using this method, as are PageMaker and Quark files.
The only snag you might hit is if you don't have the same fonts installed
on both the Mac and the PC. You can create a font translation table to
get around this, though.
