Problem with WMF


I am trying to export the following graph as a windows metafile (WMF)

  p1=Plot[{Sin[x],Sin[x+Sin[x]]},{x,0,2Pi},
          AspectRatio->Automatic,
          Ticks->{{0,\[Pi]/2,\[Pi],3\[Pi]/2,2\[Pi]},Automatic},
          TextStyle->{FontFamily->"Times",FontSize->10}
         ]

(i) when using Copy as Metafile from the menu, the curves are of very
poor
quality (not smooth). Why?

(ii) when using

  Display["c:\\tmp\\graph.wmf",p1,"Metafile",
          ImageSize->{5*72,5*72*FullOptions[p1,AspectRatio]}
         ]

the curves look fine but the fonts change into a sans serif font (like
Helvetica). Why?

I hope someone knows the answers.

Hans

p.s.There could be typos i the code as i am writing from memory. p.p.s
My system is a P90 Win95 comp. and my target programs are Word 97
      and Scientific WorkPlace 3.0.
