 Formatting Problems in FM Pro 5

Would dearly appreciate some help here!

1) Developing  FMP 5.0 database on Mac OS 9

The formatting of text in text fields changes depending on which
computer the files are browsed on; i.e., text will tab differently on
different Macs.

This is not a global change. Most lines retain their tab format, but
some lines jump all over the place: a tab more to a line of text here,
a tab less there.

I'm at wit's end and the client is freaking!

What i know:

I don't think it's a screen rez problem because I've tried changing the
screen Rez on one machine. Tabbing remains consistent.

I am not using the default tab stops within a field. Every tab has been
specified in paragraph/tabs.

I've specified fixed page margins.

Every line of text has been given a hard carriage return in MS
Word '98. This seemed to greatly reduce the problem, but not solve it.

Any ideas?

2) What is the maximum length of a text field?

I can't seem to get Filemaker to recognize text longer than ten pages.
Are there any work-arounds? (Insert/Merge doesn't seem to work any
