    It's a Microsoft Publisher file, and I have the same problem actually. I've never managed to find an OX X application that can handle this file type.

    It can't be opened on Mac OS X. The only thing I can suggest is to email it to someone with Microsoft Publisher on a Windows system who can then convert it to .pdf or even Word format.

    I could do this if you wanted to email it to me, but I don't know if the contents are sensitive or not.

    MS always complains about apple and itunes, and ipods and being all proprietary...then they make a product like publisher that does not work on any other platform nor do PDF/word files created with it ever look right on another system...Then there's the Zune which only works on Windows...at least ipods/itunes work cross platform.

    sorry for the rant, but yeah publisher sucks anyway.
