    I know that Microsoft Office files work on the iPhone, but what about iWork?

    Surprisingly enough, no they don't.

    I thought Apple would have made sure they worked before they made sure MS documents work, but no.

    I'm on 1.0.2 though, so maybe 1.1.1 fixes it?

    Cheers.

    No, i have 1.1.1 and iWork files are not supported. A bit surprising, sort of.

    It will work if the iwork App was written in Leopard. Don't forget about quick look! That includes a PDF of the document inside.. You'll always be able to see this on the iphone.

    Oh, that's how they're doing QuickLook? It just saves a PDF inside the application bundle each time it saves? Interesting, didn't know that. And good point, that would make it very easy to support viewing almost anywhere. Plus, QuickLook should be very easy to support for any Cocoa-native app since the Cocoa frameworks automatically support turning any view into PDF format. Nice.
