For various unimportant reasons, I want to format a partition using MacOS's native HFS filesystem.

Is there any software that will let me do this on a PC, without connecting the hard drive directly to a Mac?

With Gparted, you can format a partition as either HFS or HFS+.

I assume this user is on Windows. You should add in a note that says OP will need to use the gparted live CD. –  Broam Mar 12 '10 at 17:21
