Thanks William. I was beginning to be suspicious that the definitive 
answer would be to use WarmReader. I'll have to tool up and learn it.

Other people have suggested using Stone Create or Macromedia Freehand 
because they place the (eps or pdf) file in their graphics, but do not 
make it editable. I would like to be able to edit the equation graphics 
file after pasting in equations from Latex pdfs.

If anybody else has any different approaches to try, I'd be grateful to 
know about them. Otherwise, it is off to using WarmReader.
--cheers, Gordon
