I suspect the problem is with Word, not R.  Exporting as a metafile (or
even cut-and-paste) and including in Word works well *provided* your
printer is capable of high quality (e.g. a postscript printer).

Avoid the bitmap options, and use wmf, postscript or pdf for inclusion in
other documents.

On Windows, evidently!
