An Apple //e ;) Apple II 5.25" floppies aren't particularly compatible
with anything... the only thing I can think of is the Apple II emulation
board for the Mac LC. You could plug a special 5.25 drive into one of
those and use it to read Apple II floppies. (I think that's how it
works... I've used such a setup, but it's been quite a while :)

Your best bet is probably to find a working Apple II with a serial card or
some other way of transferring data to another machine (e.g. a 3.5" floppy
drive and a Mac to read the 800K format, a FDHD drive that can write
1.44MB floppies, a SCSI hard drive).

I'm currently using my Apple IIgs as a dumb terminal/serial console for
some of my other machines :)
