I ordered a new Powerbook and can't wait for it to arrive...now I have a question about switching files from my old computer (a PC) to my new Mac. This is probably a silly question, but please forgive me, as I know nothing about computers...
I have a lot of files from a program that runs only on Windows (DeadAIM) that contain a lot of important information. I know I can't run DeadAIM on my Mac to open the files, but can they be opened with some other program? The files are "HTML documents." Will I be able to open them in Safari or some other Mac program?
Thanks and sorry again if this is a very obvious or dumb question

It would seem at first that HTML files can be opened, maybe by Safari, but I see many strange results searching for DeadAIM. Maybe a bit more on that would narrow things down a bit

DeadAIM is an third party addon to the popular Windows AIM client.

DeadAIM records AIM conversations. It saves them as HTML files. They open on my PC in DeadAIM but you can also choose to open them in Netscape Navigator. I figured they could be opened in Safari as well, but I wanted to make sure.

If they can open in Netscape, no reason they wouldn't in Safari
