The best I've found so far is a combination of Adobe Photoshop and a
shareware program called epsConverter 1.0 (I just found it on America
Online so I don't have a URL to an FTP source for it yet.)

Basically epsConverter will convert any eps file (freehand, mac, pc, etc.)
to an Illustrator 3.1 file, which Photoshop can import. Then change mode to
indexed color (8-bit, system pallette) and save as a CompuServe GIF, and it
will work great with WWW/Mosaic.
