Have you tried WMF? This is Windows' native vector format, and in my
experience Word likes it.

AFAIK the only serious difference is that dia on Windows can do WMF (through
its use of the native WMF output library provided by the GDI, which explains
why we have some trouble porting this to *nix. Well libwmf (libemf?) exists,
but I don't know whether it's good enough).

I was going to say libwmf only does import but it goes to show how long it
has been since I read the webpage, they now have experimental WMF export
(and I think it is brilliant that it now has a loader for gdkpixbuf,
every graphics program should have one!)

Although the libwmf page talks about the possibility of adding
support for other file formats inlcuding EMF it doesnt do so yet.

Libemf is a seperate project

Hope that helps
