What can I do to make my resume more email friendly?

Also: Do I need to do anything? Maybe this isn't as bad as I think.
Problem: I wrote a resume using Word Perfect (a lot of people laugh whenever I mention Word Perfect, so I realize I might be in way over my head). When I test send it to myself and hit my resume attachment to see what happens (via g-mail) a box opens up where Word Perfect itself first uploads, then my resume opens up (not as a unique page, but as a page obviously within the context of Word Perfect - that is, as though the person is viewing my work-in-progress via WP).
Something tells me this is seriously awkward.
What I would like is for the potential employer to hit my resume attachment and have it simply open up to my resume. Or, if there is something even better (that I am woefully unaware of), I want that.
How do I (where do I) upload this WP document in my computer to make this possible?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
