Exporting graphics to MS Word

This has come up before, but I don't recall a definitive  statement...

For a big report, I need to export a fair number of Mathematica graphics
to MS Word (v7 for Win 95/NT, or 97/98 if that will make a difference).
I've played around with this a few times in the past and never cracked
how to get consistent print quality. Using WMF format and a PS printer
driver (for HP LJ4m) sometimes does it, sometimes not. I haven't
observed any better performance with Mathematica 3.0.1 but I guess it
may be in there somewhere.

Also, supposing I don't want to resize/modify a graphic outside of
Mathematica, is there an export format that will minimise the size of
graphics data inside Word?

Any advice? 

Thanks - Phillip
