I agree. In 2005 it should be easy to transfer stuff (I'm still
transferring word processing docs from XyWright (it was wonderful in its
day) to Word. The real problem will come when we reach, not 2005, but
2050. Who knows?

WordPort ( http://www.doc-api.com/wordport.htm ) will read WordMarc
files and convert them. TextWrangler (which is free) might - I've had
success with it. I suspect that if you really look hard, you'll find a
way into just about any file format.

Best wishes
