Thanks for replies. I found that the best way was to select the cells
and use copy as metafile (.emf). It imports as a graphic, so can't edit,
but if you enlarge it about 150% in powerpoint, it is legible and looks
exactly like mathematica on screen.

Please thank newsgroup for me, am having trouble with server.

It also might help to consider the the information at

One can also convert selected cells to one of multiple formats via  
  Edit -> Copy As
  Edit -> Save Selection As
  Cell -> Convert To
At least thats the way it works in Version 4 under Windows 98.

Also if you only need to convert graphics to another format Export alows one
to make the conversion to a wide variety of graphic formats.
