I tried pdf, because that's what I usually generate in linux, but that version 
of Octave didn't come with pdf support, or we were missing some required 
software.  That was about a year ago, does anyone know if you can generate pdfs 
in the current version of Octave on windows?

I don't use Windows, but the some "problem" appears on other platforms
as it comes from the fact that you use a pixel based image format. Just
replace "jpg" with "pdf" in the above, and you should get really nice
graphics. I don't know if you can use PDF documents in Word, etc,
