*.pdf (portable document format) files are the way to go. These files can be opened regardless of operating system as long as the user has the free Acrobat Reader application or plug-in installed. Acrobat can create *.pdf files very easily from Word or Excel. Simply open these files with Acrobat and they convert automatically! Here'e the URL for Acrobat on Adobe's Web site:

Good luck!
