*There is a convoluted way that involves conversion to LaTeX and then
to RTF and then to Word. I don't know if it works for matrices.
*On the other hand, you could buy that high end equation writing
package for Word. I hear it supports MathML input (which Mathematica
can easily export). This would probably be the best option, especially
if everyone that looks at the document doesn't have the same version
of Word.
*Another method might be to convert the elements of your matrix to
text form and then apply bold, italics, etc. within Mathematica
*If you really wanted the document to be portable, you could write it
in DocBook and embed the MathML.

Is this for work? How do they *expect* you to do this?
