I have done this on a very regular basis using Mathematica 2.2. When taking notebooks back and forth, sometimes colors and fonts get messed up a little bit, but this is easily fixed by a three-step procedure: * Under the Style menu, choose All Default Styles * Under the Edit menu, choose Select All Cells * Under the Style menu, choose Uniform Style Note that, because of the natures of the two platforms, there are a few things you might run into: * Special characters on one platform won't print correctly on the other platform (like mathematical symbols, international characters, or directional quotes). * Mathematica for Windows, as you may know, has the limitation that it cannot display multiple fonts or font sizes within a particular cell. So, it cannot interpret those font changes inside of a cell when they were done on a Macintosh. * Any graphics not created by Mathematica (e.g. pasted in from another program) will be lost.

I.e., one (the MAC) would be a desktop machine, the other (the PC) is a laptop. Thanks. Willy Gilson My own opinions, etc.
