									    What's new in Microsoft Office 2008 - MAC

    looking documents with modern graphics and text effects, manage your data for powerful results, and create designer-quality
    presentations with coordinated themes and layouts.

    based Macs, you'll be able to share ideas easily with other Mac users regardless of which Macintosh computer they use.
