cross platform issues - Adobe Indesign Windows

I'm about to start a large, long-term project with a publisher where we will be sharing InDesign CS2 files. The publisher is on MAC and I am on Windows XP. I am guessing that if we stick to opentype fonts that we each have on our systems, we should not have cross-platform problems. If I anticipate serious unresolvable issues, then I will probably just buy a MAC system and a MAC version of CS2, but I'd rather just stay on Windows.

    Default cross platform issues

    I'm about to start a large, long-term project with a publisher where we will be sharing InDesign CS2 files. The publisher is on MAC and I am on Windows XP. I am guessing that if we stick to opentype fonts that we each have on our systems, we should not have cross-platform problems.

    If I anticipate serious unresolvable issues, then I will probably just buy a MAC system and a MAC version of CS2, but I'd rather just stay on Windows.

    Can anyone tell me what issues, if any, we may run into taking InDesign files back and forth between MAC and PC?

    This seems like a topic that would have been addressed on the forum already. I did search diligently! If it has been covered already, I'd appreciate a link or a search term hint to the previous discussion.

    Thanks, Rob

    Stick with OpenType and you shouldn't have any issues at all.

    Rob, we use it all the time here, without no problems: I precreate the
    InDesign files with automated scripting on WinXP, afterwards they are
    passed down to the typesetters on OSX who do the finetuning and relink
    to the highres pictures. And, oh yes, we are using Opentype fonts as Bob
    suggests.
