      I am assuming that the MBP will be running an OS without Classic. As such, you will need either John’s or Ed’s install of Sheepshaver. Either is fine and up to you which you prefer. Double click and follow the instructions. After that, given some of the plug-ins, you can click on a WP file and it will launch SheepShaver and then WP. You can print directly to the OSX printer. The only pain is cut and paste between WordOSX and WPShSh - you have to use plain text.
