What file formats does Word support?  Do you know what format is used
in a cut and paste operation?

On Windows, cut and paste is usually done via Windows metafiles, and
Windows versions of R can produce those.  I don't think OSX versions
can (but my information might be out of date, I'm not an OSX user).
