A Response Letter to the Word Attachments

From: The Reverend Father Martin Sylvester

Sorry I was unable to read your attachment. I hope the following is useful!

You sent me an email with an attachment in Microsoft Word format,
which is not a standard Internet format, but a proprietary one owned
by Microsoft, and protected by them so people can't be sure of reading
it properly unless they buy expensive Microsoft software. If you had
sent me your text inside a plain email (instead of as an attachment to
an email), or as a plain text, rich text, HTML, or PDF attachment,
then I would have been able to read it.
