Mathematica formulae as Word metafiles

I have a need to share work with colleagues who do not have Mathematica and
have little interest in downloading MathReader. In the past, I would save
formulae as GIFs and paste them into Word, but the appearance is rather
crude (jagged). I was delighted to find the metafile format (Mathematica 4.0, Word
97) works fine on my PC, but when I share it with others by either email or
diskette, it is a garbled mess. Parentheses/braces are dropped or appear
many sizes too large or have added elements (like "|").

Is anyone else having this problem, or am I doing something bone-headed?
