You'd think so, wouldn't you? But I have had complaints in the past 
where people who requested my resume in MSWord format were unable to 
read an RTF version I'd sent them, and regardless of whether it was an 
actual MSWord issue or merely a user error, I certainly wouldn't want to 
lose out on a job opportunity on account of it.
