Subject: Reading Atari 800 floppies?

Anybody know if it's possible to read old Atari 8-bit 5.25" floppies
with some sort of PC-based software?

I used to develop software for the Ataris and some co-workers just
dredged up some floppies with source code from projects I did for Atari
that were never released. We're trying to dig up a functional 800
system to read them but it would save a lot of hassle if it was possible
to read them directly into a PC, where we have a good emulator.
