I have heard of a package called StarOffice (word processor, spreadsheet, etc.)
that can deal with these. StarOffice (free, IIRC) runs under linux, solaris-x86,
and possibly a few others.
I haven't tried it, but a co-worker has, and he's impressed.....

And, no, I don't know where he downloaded it from.....
