The Postscript output from R will produce output as good as your
printer. It is best to have a printer with a Postscript interpreter
built in, as the software conversions often found in Windows printer
drivers can be pretty wobbly. One advantage of R Postscript is that it
doesn't tack a Postscript reset (^D) on the end of every file.
As for word processors which handle Postscript inclusions, WordPerfect
for DOS (haven't got my Linux version yet) is the best I have used, and
RedHat's Applixware Words (for Linux) will also do it, although not
quite as neatly. Microsoft Word will sometimes do it, sometimes not,
although I have not used it for a while, and they may(?) have fixed it.
I think almost any Macintosh application will handle Postscript,
although I can't speak from experience. Obviously, you have to have a
Postscript interpreter somewhere between your application and the paper.
I've found that converting Postscript images to other formats (PCX,
TIFF, etc.) almost always degrades the print quality.
