As others have suggested, the key is getting encapsulated postscript files
of the desireable graphics. The problem, as you will find, is that Word
does not deal with postscript files, so if you are attempting to use those
graphics you will have to convert them.  Doing so may result in less than 
desireable looking graphics.  To get decent looking figures you will
probably have to generate them directly from the tool that originally
created them.
