Sounds like an interesting idea. We can attach an odt file. If people
say that they are not able to read it, then we should ask "Why?".
Explain to them that odt is an international standard and ask how come
they are not able to read it. Then it becomes easy to convince them that
documents need standards (just as screws, plugs and a whole lot of stuff
have) that everyone can follow so that such problems do not happen.

I liked the idea.
