Why do you think that having uppercase and a ~ in the file makes it 
virtually useless? Macs aren't case sensitive on their HTML file 

HTML is cross-platform compatible. The person just needs to launch 
their browser (since double-clicking on the htm(l) file will likely 
not work), and then Open the file from within the browser.

The only way to be sure it will it will work on Macs would be to burn 
a Mac CD, so that the file names/associations stay the same. But as 
Macs can read PC disks, and that includes CDs, it should work fine.
