If only the Mac version would export to .mpp files (MS Project) as does it's bigger and better brother on the Windows side of the tracks. There are lots of apps that use this format for better project planning - www.projectplan365.com is just one of them. Thx.

It might be easier to accomplish this via XML, is there any XML-based format that MS Project can import?

No, XML is not as reliable as .mpp, and I would never want to use it on a project unless I had to. The beef here is that Mindjet decided not to include that export, or much of any export when compared to the PC version. That means in mixed work environments where MM is being used for project planning, it's a mess.
