If you are satisfied with screen pictures of your formulas, here's
something which should work.

First, obtain a good screen area snapshot taker, like SnagIt
(, or use Alt+PrtSc to place window snapshots in
your clipboard.  Either way you go, you have got to produce what Word
2000 wants, which is a .GIF file.

If you buy SnagIt, you can set it to copy any screen rectangle at all
as a .GIF file.  If you use Alt+PrtSc, your copy box will be framed by
individual window boundaries, and each clipboard full of pixels will
have to be pasted into MS-Paint, then Saved As ... a .GIF file.

After you have your library of .GIF file pictures of your equation
sections, you're almost home.  .GIF files will drag & drop right into
Word documents.  And once their pasted in, you can resize them at
will, either keeping or changing their native aspect ratios.

Good luck.
