Have you tried pict (.pct) format?
Authored by: pal on May 27, '04 06:42:54PM

Word on the Mac uses vector clipart in pict format. This format can be exported from Illustrator and inserted in Word.

The inserted pict resizes nicely, so I believe that the vectors are retained.

I haven't tried to open the file on the PC though.

Might be worth a try.

Hmm, I forgot about PICT. It is a very versatile format. Word still has a problem with compound paths though (those thin radiating lines). PICT seems to make smoother paths than WMF, at least visually.

Opens on Windows but with the thin lines as well
