Do you know whether AppleWorks reads MacWrite II or Pro files? My PhD  
thesis was in MacWrite II format and I have converted it to MacWrite  
Pro, but I missed getting AppleWorks and then when I bought iWork I  
realized Pages does not read MacWrite Pro files (I expected it would,  
being Apple software).

I'd still like to be able to read my thesis files, and given I've no  
longer any PPC Mac I can no longer run Classic and hence MacWrite Pro.  
If you confirm that AppleWorks is the key, then I might try to get a  
copy somewhere (given it is no longer available from Apple, right?).
