Plus immediately recognized it as a WordPerfect 2
for Mac document, and was able to readily convert
it to a WP 3.5ep document, to a Word X for Mac
Document, to a Word 98 document, and to a Word
Windows XP document.
I was able to open the converted files using WP
3.5ep for Mac, and Word X. In all cases, the
opened files look the same.... the fax cover
sheet of an architectural design firm in the
Swedish town of Göteborg.
