Does anyone know, if there are Mac OS glossaries (similar to the Microsoft ones) available anywhere?

To view the files... Apr 13, 2007

Thank you for the links, Cecilia!

To be able to view the files in Windows you need some programs:

For the DMG file you need a program to convert the .dmg file to an .iso file (I used MacigISO) and a virtual cd/dvd-rom emulator such as Daemon Tools, which you use to open the ISO file. On the virtual disc there is a a tab delimited text file that can be opened with Notepad, MS Excel, OpenOffice or similar.

For the sit.hqx files you need a program called Stuffit Expander (similar to WinZip etc.). Winzip can open the .hqx files but not .sit files. The unzipped .ad files can be opened in Notepad, but I would suggest using MS Word, OpenOffice or an XML viewer, for example.

Hope this helps!
