No PC-Write???  ;-)

Oh, stab me in the heart. My 64 bit computer tells me it won't run PC-Write (yes, I've tried). Also, my printers won't recognize DOS printer drivers. At any rate, PC-Write's document files were simple ASCII files with a few formatting codes thrown in; quite similar to today's Markdown (or LaTeX) files. So, when I need access to an old PC-Write document, I just load it into a text editor like NoteTab, and strip out the formatting codes. I can then load it into *any* word processor. I've done this many times. In fact, when sharing documents with others, regardless of their programs, I've often found it necessary to take the documents down to plain text, and then reformat with my own preferred styles.
