Just to put things into perspective, Mac OS 9, the heart of the Classic environment, supports file and folder names of up to 32 characters (or 16 double-byte characters). So unless you use unfeasibly long filenames, this will more than likely be a non-issue. A cross-platform minor annoyance that you may encounter is that EPS graphics produced on the Mac appear as gray boxes on your PC. This is because Mac EPS files are typically saved with a PICT data preview, which is not supported by Windows. EPS files saved with a TIFF data preview appears OK on either platform. Paul
