I remember reading somewhere that there may be 
differences in format from one version of MSPublisher and 
another.  So it might help to know what version they are 
running.  Then you could buy that version on e-bay and run it 
on someone's machine that has Windows.  I have a Win XP 
partition on which it could be run.
