Well, I have pstoedit on Linux and with

  pstoedit -f emf infile.eps outfile.emf

I get what is claimed to be "Enhanced Windows metafile" and which can be imported into Word (though then it is subsequently somewhat resistant to editing operations, such as rotating if it's the wrong way up).

On the other hand,

  pstoedit -f wmf infile.eps outfile.wmf

which is supposed to produce a Windows metafile, produces something which Word resists importing.

Best wishes to all,
Ted.
