Yes, it's an exceptionally bad case. Mostly documents can be read
without flaws, but Word is known for that problem even between different
Word installations, sometimes a different installed printer suffices. I
tried Microsoft Office 2003 just now, and while better it does not
render like your PDF.
Doc is a raw format for work in progress, no exchange format for
finished documents, but Microsoft users will never get that.

An unqualified yes. It's version 1.4 for Readers 5 and up and I've never
found OO-written pdfs to give any trouble in any reader. The same is not
true for one generated by Adobe programs, like Microsoft they don't feel
much bound by their own documented standards.
