The dvi format is supposed to be platform-independent. My experiments have
not included Macs, but among IBM mainframes, PCs with Windows or DOS or
OS/2, and unix/linux systems, it is. Just do a binary copy or FTP of the dvi
to the Mac and you should be able to preview, print, etc.

If the .tex input file is truly plain 7-bit ASCII, it is also
platform-independent and will compile on any machine with a suitable version
of (La)TeX.
