I'm pretty sure the version on the AJPO/AdaIC machine is binary, and the PAL just mirrors that. I run on a Mac, and when I dowloaded and opened this file, it said it was "read-only" (and would be translated) because it was a Windows PPT file, but that is easily gotten around if one wants to edit it by using "Save As." No problems other than that. -- hh PS: Someone at the AdaIC or AJPO should be asked for help if this doesn't do it. Rick Conn is not the author, just the manager of the PAL.
