Where I work, we actually insert graphics into our documents, rather
than linking them. We been told to save graphics as GIF files rather
than BMP files to keep the Word documents from getting too big. But does
it really make a difference? I thought Word converted a graphic into its
own proprietary format within a document, and that that format was the
same regardless of the format of the original graphic. Is that so?
