Perhaps I wasn't thorough, or perhaps we're at a misunderstanding. Once you
have set the resume up the way you want it to look in OO, save it as a
.com as per Microsoft 1997~2003. Don't save it in .odf or anything like 
as there is a good chance that the intended recipient won't be able to read
it. But everybody in the world can read MS .com 1997 vintage. anyway,
when you're done, just attach the OO document, saved as a .com, to the
email cover letter you're sending, and let the prospective employer open it.

In my editing chore, I do almost exactly that--I make all the 
corrections and
formatting, save the file as .doc, and send it off to the publisher, who 
uses a publishing program to make it fit the pages and columns of the
newsletter. His publisher app runs on an older Mac, but as I said, 
everyone and
every machine can read MS .doc files from the turn of the 21st century.

Have I missed anything?
