File sharing has come a long way when it comes to exchanging word processing and other files between PCs and Macs. Yet, there are still some things we can do to ensure files open pretty faithfully when you cross over from one to the other. One of the main culprits for compatibility problems is font use. So, if you know you’ll be sharing files between platforms, stick to fonts common on both. Examples include: Arial, Century Gothic, Courier, Georgia, Tahoma, Times New Roman, and Verdana.
