    There is no ODF plugin for Office on Mac yet.
    Best bet is to install OpenOffice on the Mac or save the file as .doc in StarOffice
    http://openoffice.bouncer.osuosl.org...&version=2.4.1

    btw, OpenOffice 3 (which is currently in Beta) will read/write Office2007/8 XML files
    marketing: OpenOffice.org 3.0 Beta Features
    So it may be worth upgrading the StarOffice to OOOv3 soon

    Unfortunately that's not my call, it's installed in another school which we have some shared students of for this Creative Media Dimploma.

    Oh the other school is under BSF and coincidentally Sun have the contract here...
