Save to MIF format and re-open in the 5.0 program.
MIF has so far maintained downwards compatibility from as far
back as, well... just about all the way, I think.

If you have 5.5-specific features in the file, the 5.0 version of the
executable will read in the MIF and ignore the 5.5 features.

Depending on your platform, and/or a few default settings,
you may be able to watch a console display of the "ignoring" messages if
you're interested..

It's worth learning about MIF and its structure... It can save you
from a lot of dicky problems, sometimes.
