tranny same as PS fluid?

Hello all,
I've heard that transmission fluid is ok to use in the power steering reservoir, and that it is actually suggested for some deisels. Mine is not a diesel but I was going to fill the PS with ATF in our 89 190e but thought I should ask you all first. is this acceptable/recommended? Reason I just dont go buy PS fluid is because I have a bunch of ATF I'm not using.
thanks for your time.
