Also, it wouldn't surprise me if you could hook up a normal PC floppy drive to an apple 2 emulator program and get the stuff off that way.

In any case, I agree, I don't know the longevity of floppy media.

If they're Apple-formatted 3.5" floppies, which store 800k instead of the DOS 720k, then they can't be opened by a normal PC floppy drive. The easiest way to copy the files is to get an pre-OSX Mac with a floppy drive, image the disks, and then copy the disk images to a PC, where they can be read by software like CiderPress or an emulator.

As far as longevity, I still have all my old 3.5" disks for my IIgs and they were still able to be read as of 2007 or so.
