Further to what Fred said: When in a Windows environment, Word embeds
Visio objects perfectly. If the recipient has Visio, the object can be
edited or opened. If the recipient doesn't, the recipient can still
view the preview image, but can't edit it.

OTOH, PDFs embed perfectly into Mac:Word, as OS X supports PDF natively.

Before embedding actual objects, I used to link to EPS files. As long
as I exported as a PDF, the graphic quality was retained. Onscreen the
images looked like crap, because the EPS file displayed the low res
image header
