Resumes Attached to Emails

When an employer says in a job listing (like on Craigslist) "Please email a cover letter and resume in MS Word format," do they mean as an attachment or in the body of the email?

The employer is asking you to create your resume and cover letter as individual MS Word documents; and to send them both as attachments to an email. I suggest you also write a brief message in the body of the email, something like:
Dear Manager,
I am attaching my resume and cover letter for the Inventory Management position, as requested by your post on Craigslist.
Thank you!
Your Name
Good luck with your online job search!
