Thanks for responding. We teach MS Office applications on iMacs with Macintosh Manager. Having worked on MSWord on a PC in a business setting, I only minor differences. Some community members are pressing for PCs , one making that broad statement about high schools in Vermont. As our students do not even see the desktop, I see no reason to moving to PCs which I have found to be less robust and more prone to student mischief.

> I am confused by the question, what types of business oriented things would you do in the Office suite on PC's that would in any way differ from that on Macs? The only exception I can think of would possibly be ODBC connections to Access (not included with or available for Macs), which can easily be paralleled, if not improved upon with ODBC to FileMaker. If you have Macs teach the same stuff as you would PCs. Oh, it just occurred to me that some may use Word for HTML coding using Front Page extensions but you need a server that supports that as well. Mac Word will save as HTML as well but IMHO this is not a good way to learn HTML anyway. Anybody else?
