I use Rod Page's TreeView program to view and print treefiles.
(http://taxonomy.zoology.gla.ac.uk/rod/treeview.html)
It is available for both Windows and Mac OS platforms and reads phylip,
newick, and nexus treefiles.  The version I have (1.5 for Mac PPC) also has
some handy, MacClade-like tree editing features, and allows for trees to be
exported in a variety of formats.

cheers,

Byron
