No trouble; if anything, PCs have the trouble. Mac screen resolution is
72 dpi, which is the same number of pixels per inch as there are
typographical points in an inch, which means that type displays at a
normal size on a Mac. PCs have a res. of 96dpi, which means type
displays differently. If you design a site on a PC and don't bother to
make sure it displays on Macs OK too, then type which is OK on a PC will
display tiny on a Mac.

Not sure what you mean here-plug it into your system? You can plug it
into the 'Net if it's got a modem... or you can network the two
together, is that what you mean?

Don't get the 'w95 with built in modem' bit here...what does that mean?
