Recent versions of Word import EPS quite well. I just tried it with Word 2003 (also known as Word 11), and the figure was imported properly. Word added a preview all by itself.

To do this, I opened an Explorer (directory) window on the directory with the files, then dragged the EPS file to Word. I am certain it can also be done through the menu system.

I then converted an EPS file's line endings to *ix format and repeated the above. It still worked fine.
