Under Windows, pasting as vector graphics works usually with MS Office 
stuff. I found that it works even better in OpenOffice, which of course 
has the advantage of zero cost. In the OODraw application, you can also 
manipulate pasted graphics very nicely (first you have to ungroup the 
graphics object). Comes in quite handy sometimes...
