Last time I applied for a job, paper by hand was the method of delivery

Can anyone offer a good source? I know there are lots online, but I'm looking to just read a few of high quality.

Appreciated

Not sure what you are asking. Do you use a word processor? You have created an electonic resume (for example MS Word?)

I mean tips for writing an email resume that won't come out looking like garbage via MS Word.

One tip is realize many (most?) large employers are electronically scanning resumes for key words. It is best if your resume has key words that might be in the requisition. For example, if you are applying for a radar engineer position, the req might have Doppler and radar and electronic countermeasures in it. If your resume had these key words in it, your resume would probably be more likely to be flagged for further consideration.

just write it in word and save it as a PDF, that way the formatting will stay the same no matter what. it depends on what version of word you use, but newer versions have an option to save a copy as a PDF. if not, there is a free program called cutepdf that allows you to "print" to a pdf file and save it. some employers ask for a specific format though, so watch for that. some of them want it in word.
