I've been under the (possibly incorrect) impression that different 
platforms use different forms of EPS previews, making truly 
cross-platform EPS files impossible.

A lot of people I deal with use Microsoft Word or Microsoft 
PowerPoint.  If they want one of my figures, I convert it to EPS and 
use Canvas 8 to create a preview.  I import that into a Word or 
PowerPoint document for them and send it on.  The default preview 
that Canvas 8 creates has a fairly low resolution, but it's been good 
enough so far.  I haven't had any complaints from PC users about my 
previews, yet.
