I think maybe the question is, how do you import postscript format
into an M$Word document.  I am NOT a word user, but I had to do this
some years ago and found that it IS possible to import postscript.

You do something like "import picture ... (some kind of generic-
sounding graphics format)", and it works fine.  The postscript
behaves very nicely once you get it in.  You have to play around
quite a bit, and try some very unlikely sounding possibilities to
get it in, but it WILL work.  There are definitely some shortcomings
in the documentation for M$Word (to put it charitably).

Other people will have more recent experience with this than I have.
