The PC folks had to print the document. The Mac folks could view and
print, but not edit. (This was in Frame 3. It only worked with PostScript
files generated and read using the same version of FM.) The UNIX guy
opened and edited the file. He didn't tell me how he did it. Knowing him,
he probably wrote a PS editor to do the job.
