      I downloaded the wpd file in question. MacLink
      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.
