That's why."

Interesting statistics. Some recruiters don't want PDF
files. Some HR people don't want HTML files. Some HR
people and recruiters don't want txt files. Some HR
people and recruiters actually prefer faxes.

Regarding resumes, however, blanket statements about
resume file format don't apply. Instead, it is better
to follow any instructions from a recruiter or any
instructions in a job ad and only provide the
requested file type. If no particular file type is
requested, then you can make an educated guess about
which file type to use. However, don't assume that all
people involved in hiring don't want PDFs.
