Hi,
	I experienced some peoblems with placing MMA graphics in a
word proccessor. I found the problem to be the graphic was saved as
a 24bit (true colour) file which the word proccessor couldn't handle.
I got around it by reducing the colour depth with a graphics package.
Hope that helps

Cheers
	Ian.
