Hi Joel,
  I too have suffered Mathematica and graphics.  You would think this stuff
would be ironed out by now but I think Mathematica wants all users to
eat-sleep-breath... using notebooks.  Notebooks are cool but they
don't really cut it for publication stuff.  (enough griping).  Here's
how I do my plotting.

// here p9 is a plot , 400 is the resolution.  
Display["p9.gif",p9,"GIF",ImageSize->{548,468},ImageResolution->400]

the resulting gif is about 43kB.  I'm running a P233 with 60MB and
loading even these small gif files into MS word 97 makes makes my
machine hurt.  There is a way to have word use place holders and/or
just show the filename but I can't remember how to do it. Nevertheless,
the resolution darn good.


PLEASE WOLFRAM, HELP US WITH THIS ISSUE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
