Seems like using EPS (encapsulated postscript) would be the most
straightforward way to import graphcs into Word (and many other
problems) with a minimum of hassle.  However, you may end up having to
generate a preview image of the EPS file to get the document to print
properly on a non-Postscript printer, which defeats the purpose!
