This plain text format will hold it formatting and thus look much cleaner on the receiving end. Once you save a copy of your resume in this format, you will want to go in and clean up all the symbols and spacing so it's readable. Your word version is your clean word copy you can both print out as a hard copy or attach as a word document in an e mail.
