This must be a very common problem.

I using Mathematica 4 on UNIX, via the Hummingbird exceed
X Server on an NT desktop.

I need to put the graphics output from Mathamatica (running under UNIX)
into an MS Word document (running under NT).

Furthermore, I don't normally use a PostScript printer.
I normally use an HP Deskjet-style printer.

Can somebody please tell me the best way to do this.
Problematic issues are Font problems, graphics resolution, etc.

Ideally I'd like to copy and paste directly from the exceed window,
but this doesn't seem to work.

Thanks in advance for all your help.
