Would a PDF file be better if you do not know what WP your recipient uses? I'm not sure if you can assume Microsoft Word is going to be on the machine. In my experience one of the last Apple hold outs seems to be in publishing. They also seem to be very prevalent among professional writers. Apple seems to attract the artistic and non conformist types. Off the top of my head the examples that come to mind are Moby, Tony Hawk and the Late Douglas Adams.

A PDF is going to be readable no matter what platform it is received on. Look to submission rules, but I would think the last thing you would want to do is to send a Mac fanatic a .doc file.

Long on AAPL, sort of how I know this stuff
