that's easy:  RTF.  It is the non-proprietary subset supported
universally.  If you send an RTF doc all platforms (at least all the
ones I know about) will be able to open and render it.  Avoid using
strange fonts/formatting and you should be good.

PDF sucks (requires bloatware to view).  JPG is better than PDF. ;-)
