PDD files from PDD Maker GX

Is there any application available that can not only read, but edit and save these files? I can open them in SimpleText, but the Save and Save As commands are disabled.

If not, is there any other way to save formatted text from Netscape? Saving as "Source" just saves the URL. I want the content, not the URL. And "printing" to a PS file gives raw PostScript information which prints correctly but doesn't look too hot on screen.

I'm not sure about the first option, but you could try opening the PDD file from a word processing app, say ClarisWorks.

However, the second should work better.  Saving as source should give you a file of the page's HTML code. If after selecting the location of the file to be saved you don't have a copy of the HTML code, you should check that Netscape's preferences are properly set in the Helper tab of the General Preferences (under the Options menu) and try saving again.

Great second half answer -- that will take care of any future files. Unfortunately, it still doesn't help me in regard to the PDD files I already have. Since QuickDraw GX is about to be abandoned, I'd like to get my files into another format. All of the word processors I've tried (incl. Acrobat Reader 3, ClarisWorks 4, MS Works 4 and WordPerfect 3.5) are unable to import these PDD files, and as I said, SimpleText imports them as read-only (can't even Save). I guess I may need to wait until Rhapsody to see if Apple plans on doing anything about it, but that's obviously kinda risky and not at all timely. Thanks for your help!
