Adobe doesn't think so.

Indeed. If you could open 5.5 files with 5 why would you bother buying 5.5? Adobe does know what it is doing. Just like skipping a version on upgrades doesn't save you any money as the farther back you upgrade the more expensive it gets so you pay for the version you skipped before it is all said and done.

Had so much fun trying to downsave a Quark file on my boss' computer the other day. Didn't realize you had to actually select what version you were downsaving it to or else it would save it in the same version.
We've had a couple of InDesign 5.5 files come in and it took researching online to figure out why we couldn't open them in CS5.
