I don't have much experience with this, but I think you may want eps for 
use in TeX documents. You might want to have a look at

Tex Unbound : Latex and Tex Strategies for Fonts, Graphics, & More

Though the book as a whole may be overkill for your needs, it shows how to 
incorporate graphics files in TeX documents (don't have the book with me 
here, so can't give page refs).
