All Macs for quite a few years now come with Acrobat Reader 
installed. Most people don't know it's there or what it's for. A few 
will trash it. Most will never upgrade, so if you create PDFs 
requiring v4 there will be a number of people who have only Reader 

Since the question was meant to be about rtf files I've just done an 
experiment - opened an rtf file I received as an attachment via 
AppleWorks 6. That worked fine.. Some earlier versions of AppleWorks 
(previously called ClarisWorks) might have trouble.

Most Macs come with AppleWorks installed. People need to buy MS Word 
/ Office separately.

Hope that helps.
