I use a Mac and therefore save the equations as PICT.

I've also tried tagging cells and exporting equations as high resolution
(360 dpi) TIFFs but I find PICT gives better results with less hassles.

...notwithstanding that the font no longer is courier when I print my word
document to *.pdf due to this frustrating "no MC font present" error message
that occurs in acrobat exchange.

Its a long story.
