Warcraft III: Mac version can play against PC version?

Hi,

Dumb question of the month here. Be nice!

I've just got broadband internet at home and can at last participate in online gaming.

My question is, can Mac versions of games connect to and play against PC versions? I'm specifically thinking of Warcraft III, although I also have Age of Mythology (if that even has a multiplayer option).

Cheers,

Zen

Cool, thanks for the replies!

Now that I have broadband I need to invest in some more games with multiplayer - I see Ghost Recon is popular on Game Ranger...
