	There's a surprising number of Mac weenies in management too, most
of them with no love for Microsoft. Also a lot of companies that dump
resumes into databases or process their HR mailboxes with scripts. Ascii's
a lot easier for them too.
	Accepting and sending Word docs is tacit approval of Microsoft's
continued trend of obfuscating file formats. When they publish a stable
file spec, *then* playing friendly with Word docs might start to become
reasonable.

	Then again, you're still posting with Outlook Express, so your
views probably differ quite a bit.
