Hi Judy,

There seem to be two or three solutions recommended by different folks.

I believe Richard or Sarah has published an AppleScript script to set 
the file type & creator (which is all that was needed here the couple 
of times I've encountered a stack from Windows).

You might try double-clicking on the stack and telling Mac OS to use 
Rev to open it, or starting Rev and opening the stack from the 
message box.  And once it's opened, it must be saved to be flagged as 
a Revolution document.

Or you can use Serendipity Library's SDB Utilities to compress the 
stack on Windows and decompress it on a Mac, in which case the 
creator & file type are included automatically for .txt, .rev, and 
.mc (MetaCard) documents.
