In windows (98) I've had problems with eps/bmp/emf with resolution when
trying to paste into word (not just with R graphics but with SAS graphics
as well). By accident two weeks ago I learned that writing the graphic in
PNG format results in very little resolution loss. It may work in for you
too, at least until you find a more permanent strategy. I paste it in
using "insert picture", "from file" pull downs into word/powerpoint.
