In MSWord, there are two options:
1. Insert>Picture>From File>(Insert>Link to File)
2. Insert>Object>Create From File (Link to File).
In option 1, only a link to the image is put into the word doc, a behavior
similar to that of HTML files.
In option 2 however, a bunch of support code is added to the word doc, to
enable it to open the linked "object". This makes the doc size much larger.
The advantage of this option is that you can link or embed any kind of
object - a movie, a picture, an excel sheet, even another Word doc! For
linking or embedding jpgs however, this is overkill.
It looks like the path being linked is the absolute path (c:\yada\yada). As
a result, when someone opens the file on the network, the Word program on
her machine cannot find the object on her C:\yada\yada. I don't know of any
simple and transparent solution to this problem. :(
