Create zip files that you can send to PC users - that don't have the .DS_Store and __MAC_OSX info

Our Mac's are great and easy to use... but they use a lot of hidden files to keep things working smoothly. During normal use, we don't normally see these files - but when we create zip archives, and send them to PC users, a lot of confusion can occur when they ask, "What is this .DS_Store file?" or "Where are the files you are sending me?", or "What is __MAC_OSX?"

When a PC user unzips archives created on the mac, the files you intended to send will be two folders deep - along with all of these superfluous files.

Zip Mac Files for the PC will create zip files that appear "Normal" to PC users. This means that they can unzip them as if they came from another PC user. Also, they can use automated unzip software, and not have to deal with the hassle of extracting your intended files.

To use - Just drag a folder full of files to be zipped onto the program icon - and you're done! The zipped files will appear in the same location as the source file(s).
