One detail that Simon omitted: do not copy public keys into Word files.
It must be transmitted as-is, without any of the data mangling that
Word does behind-the-scenes.
Alternately (and IMO, preferably), use the keyserver network.
gpg --keyserver pool.sks-keyservers.net --send-key 12345678
Then, a few hours later, the correspondent can use recv-key to get the key:
gpg --keyserver pool.sks-keyservers.net --recv-key 12345678
