You could use Word document format as a good exchange. Save the file in
Word97 format (Unicode), and then open it on Word98 (Unicode) on the Mac.
You have several export options from Word98 if that is not the format you
store your documents in.

Since you mention RTF, that itself works well, if your reader on the Mac can
handle RTF (again, Word98 on the Mac, for example).

If formatting is not important, you can also use Unicode plain text files.
Open your RTF in Word97, save as Unicode plain text, then move those to Mac.
