    You'll have to save it as a .doc or .pdf so that one can view it on a Windows PC

    * From the 'File' menu in pages choose 'Export'. Then click on 'Word' and then press 'Next'. Give the file a name and press 'Save'. This will produce a file with a .DOC extension that you can email to the Windows user.

    * I am assuming you are using IWORK 08

    If they only need to view the file, it would be best to send them a PDF file to preserve fonts and layout. PDFs can be created with the "Export" command or the "Print" command.

    Windows users are being asked to purchase a license? For what?
