No. You should be able to use a *Mac* utility on a *Mac* to unzip the 
files after downloading to a *Mac*. 

Because zip files are so ubiquitous even Mac people have a need to get at
them and, clever people that they are, have produced little *Mac*
programs to do the dirty job. Where to get such a utility if you didn't
have it already was a highlighted link in the introduction web page. 

Please everybody, this wasn't meant to be an endurance test. Read the
web pages and Linda's follow-up carefully before plunging in. If you're
still lost ask your local expert to *also* read the background
information carefully.

Perhaps a reference to the Library of Congress abbreviations. In Dos 
Papyrus those abbreviations show in the search results screen, the full 
title in the edit screen.
