In the R.app GUI, you can click the plot window and then select "Copy"
from the "Edit" menu (or press Command-C). You can now past the plot
into most Mac applications (e.g. Apple's own iWork suit), but it
doesn't work in Word 2004 -- so it's really a problem with Word.

Or, much better, a PDF file by selecting "Save As ..." from the "File"
menu (Shift-Command-S). You should then be able to drag and drop the
PDF file into Word.
