I typed out a letter of only 1 page and saved and the file is 713KB! MS Word files of 1 page are like 113KB for the .docx format. Why are pages files so large? I remember in the old days of 3.5 inch floppy disks. I would use ClarisWorks or MacWrite and fit a ton of files on a floppy disk. No reason why pages files have to be so large.
