I recently purchased a new PC and want desperately to transfer my old word documents from my ancient Plus to the new machine.  Neither machine can read a disk from the other, so I don't know where to even start.  Any leads would be appreciated.

Since you obviously have connection to the internet, there lies your soultion. Email them to yourself and receive them on your PC.

But doesn't have your Plus the ability to format disk in PC format? Then the proces would even be easier, format floppies as DOS floppies in your Mac, drag the files onto the floppy and voila.

My Plus is not internet capable, so the first solution won't work in this case.  Also, it may be that I just don't know how, but the Plus doesn't offer any options on how to format a disk.  If I'm missing something, please advise.

Which system software are you running on the Plus?
The later Plusses were equiped with superdrives.
Insert a floppy, select it in the Finder and choose format. There should be a pull down menu in the appearing dialog window that allows you to format as Mac, DOS and ProDos.

If you have a modem hanging around, then also that old Plus of yours is Internet capable. God, isn't Mac great?
