As far as I know, cut (from Mma) and paste (into Word) is the only
way.  Which isn't as bad as it sounds.  Mathematica graphics can be
converted to bitmaps and imported by the Draw mini-app that comes with
Word for Windows (I've done this in both color and B&W, with excellent
results), and tables of numbers can (after appropriate formatting
within Mma) go to either Excel (which has OLE capability) or MS Graph
(another Word mini-app).  The biggest problem is equations.  If
MathType accepts Tex input (which I think it does, but I don't use the
program), then Mathematica can be told to produce Tex and everything
is fine (assuming you can get MathType into Word documents).  If not,
I'm stumped.

Hope this helps.
