NJPLOT is indeed a lovely simple to use program from Manolo Gouy which
runs on MAC only and produces PICT files from PHYLIP format trees.
It can also read bootstrap information from Clustal W bootstrap
files (*.phb). we include it with Clustal W (for mac) but is
also available on its own from the EMBL file server ....

MANY THANKS to Manolo Gouy for getting us off the hook with regard to
displaying trees on macs.
