Document file format for universal adoption? [closed]

I don't want to assume that someone has Word installed on their machine. What is the best file format so that everyone can read a document file?

The best format to write a resume in is latex IMO. I have mine spitting out beautiful PDFs and Word docs.

"For a resume I'd supply a PDF (ubiquitous and can't be easily edited) but have a DOC ready if it's requested.

I've known some recruiters who wanted DOC files because they had resume indexing software that didn't work with PDF files."
