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
* 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.

Could you let me know if you have successfully or unsuccessfully
tried porting MMA notebook files back and forth between
MAC and PC on a routine basis? I.e., one (the MAC) would be a
desktop machine, the other (the PC) is a laptop.
My own opinions, etc.
