Sharing VS 2002 files with a friend with 2003

I have been developing ASP.NET VS 2002. My friend has 2003. Whenever I send him my aspx and aspx.vb files he cannot import them into his solution. I sent him a complete project and he couldn't load that into VS2003 either. Is there any way I can develop in 2002 and he can use my files in 2003? I can't afford the upgrade and I missed the $29 special, so I'm thankful for any type of workaround you may have.
