[R] OT: ps -> eps -> MS Word

I've created a bunch of postscript trees (post.rpart), which I subsequently 
edit in Adobe Acrobat 4.05 (I need additional labelling that isn't easy to 
add with R).  After editing the labels and annotations using Acrobat, I 
then export the file to Adobe's .eps format so I can insert the picture 
into a Microsoft Word 2000 document.  The .pdf file distilled from the .ps 
file is crystal clear, while the .eps file is fuzzy at any resolution in 
any program (Ghostview 4/Ghostscript 7), Paintshop Pro 7, Word 2000, 
Powerpoint 2000.  Is there some way to keep the .eps resolution the same as 
the .pdf/.ps resolution?

(I realize that LaTex is the way to go, but I'm too near completion of this 
project to change the entire document.  And, the journal is too Neanderthal 
to accept a manuscript in LaTex format).

I welcome suggestions.
