Thanks to everyone for the suggestions to try QuickTime.  It works with
many varieties of the TIF format, however it will not open a G3 or G4
(group 3 or 4 compression) format TIF. And unfortionately for me, G3 TIF is
what I need to view. I even updated my QT to the latest available version.
Bummer!  Other options?
