To All:

I'm trying to export a native Illustrator 8.0.1 file as an EMF, ultimately
for the purpose of placing it in a Word document. I've noted that when
exported, the file size more than doubles--from approx. 700k to over 1,800k.
Of course, I'd chalk it up to the EMF format itself, but I swear I've
exported EMFs before with no file bloat. The same thing also occurs with
TIFF exports, which I thought was a relatively compact format. Any
suggestions on how to prevent this would be greatly appreciated. Note that I
am using Windows NT.

I'm an Illustrator newbie, so if this a well-known and much documented issue
please feel free to mock me and my ancestors openly. We are used to it.
