A set of blank file is attached to this answer in a zip file.  You can download these and file transfer them to the correct location on the MAC computer

NOTE:  By default the Macintosh text editor program "TextEdit" creates new documents as RTF files, but we expect text files.  To fix this, open TextEdit, select Preferences from TextEdit menu, select "Plain text" radio button in the "New Document Attributes" section before creating the new text files.
