Its been my recent experience that when saving to .doc with OOo, it will
open and look OK in OpenOffice, but some features still looks a bit screwed
up in Word. The same for opening Word created .docs in OOo.

Use PDF. Everyone should be able to view them, and the software to read the
files is freely available.
