    Yes, I'm too poor to the fact that I'm incapable of buying MS Office for Mac. So I have to use Pages. But I'm also too poor to own a printer, so I have stuff printed on computer shops.

    How then, would I survive?

    After your done with your work on pages, Select File > Export > Word format. Now you can view/edit/print your documents on Microsoft Office.

    No. That's one of the features of pages.

    Right after your done with your work (While running pages), Click 'File' on the menu bar on top. Then click 'Export'. Choose 'Word' format, and select where you want to save it and your done.

    you can't open a file from pages in windows before exporting it first. I think he's already in the computer shop...

    get your mac, open your document with pages and export is as a microsoft word document. good luck! :)

    How about the Mac-only fonts? Will it still show when it's in a .doc format already?

    depends if the a similar font is installed in Windows I guess...

    To be on the "safe" side, I suggest you export the document as a .pdf file if you don't need to edit the document in Windows anymore.
