Markzware has a new service that can convert a document from any version of QuarkXPress or InDesign to any version of QuarkXPress or InDesign. It can also convert Adobe Illustrator documents among versions, or Microsoft Publisher documents to ID or QXP.
Their downsaving / file conversion service costs just $19, or 19 Euros, per file, as long as it’s under 125MB (not including fonts or placed graphics, which they don’t need for the conversion).
If you have a corrupted file, this service can also help recover it.
