This document was originally composed on a Macintosh 512K and has been compresssed as an hqx file and is in MacWrite 1 format. Unfortunately, it requires that you have these [Courier, Symbol, Helvita, Times] and only these fonts installed. MacWrite 1 stores the font information by denoting the font in the order in which it is installed. Claris MacWrite 2 fixed that problem, but disregarded font information written by MacWrite 1. Does anyone have a way to translate to MacWrite 2 and preserve the Symbol font?

Here it is as html.
