ISTR that extension being used by Lotus Word Pro (successor to Ami Pro),
part of their office suite?

As a general rule, the Unix "file" command is a good place to start;
running it through "strings" may also give some hints. On Windows, the
Quick View Plus tool from Jasc is pretty good for viewing/printing
"strange" file types, but I haven't seen a Unix counterpart yet :(
