    Word for Windows vs. Word for Mac
    I am highly considering purchasing a MacBook to replace my current Windows laptop and had a question. If I create a document on the Mac and save it as a.xml file, is it fully readable and editable on a Windows pc?

    Can't answer that one, but a .doc file (or .rtf) is totally portable. Never tried .xml.
