    There are several options for templates you can use in Pages. First, there those submitted by other users & available at iWork Community.

    Try Microsoft Office templates to find links to many PC templates. Then comes the Microsoft trickery part. Choose the category then sub-category & then click the name of a template. Next is a page with a "download" button that takes you to the "Your operating system doesn't meet system requirements" page. All that means is that you can't use their automatic download service. Click the "download now" button in the section to manually download. Somewhere along the process was a license agreement. The file I chose downloaded as 06369101.cab. Double-clicking it launched Stuffit & resulted in a folder. I then had to change the .dot file in the folder to have the .doc extension. It then opened in Pages with only one unsupported warning.

    The Mactopia site has a lot less templates to choose from, but was less involved to download. Most templates for Word will open nicely in Pages. I haven't come across one that doesn't, but that doesn't mean someone else might. The only thing to watch for is the file extension. Some Word templates have an extension other than .doc. You will still be able to use them, just change the extension to .doc in the Finder or Pages won't recognized them as Word files. Of course, you can't change just any file's extension to .doc & have Pages open it. It must be a Word document.
