Yes, I already did that, and only got three hits - two are out of print and the third looks like it's not specific to Windows metafiles. Any other ideas?

I don't know if you're a Visual Basic programmer or not, but if you are you should take a look at Dan Appleman's "Visual Basic 5.0 Programmer's Guide to the Win32 API." He covers the whole API in this book, but he goes into depth about metafiles/enhanced metafiles, with a sample program and a discussion of the various structures and file format. If you're interested, take a look at chapter 8.
Hope this helped.

PS: Do a search at Amazon with the following text:
"Graphics File Formats in Windows 95." I found several books when I did this. All the best.

Best source for me was MSDN, anything else is not worth it.
There is an example and a help file you should look into.
