Font problem and Postscript problem

I use Mathematica 2.1. on Macintosh IIci, both as front-end and kernel also.

I have two strange, partly interrelated problems:

1. Mathematica printing fonts
I generate curve and surface plots with Mathematica and typically use
DefaultFont->Times.  When I print these plots using "Print selection",
the output font is Courier, not Times.  I have tried to change the font
of the Graphics style, to no avail.

2. Mathematica/MS Word/Postscript problem
I have tried to paste Mathematica plots to MS Word 5.0.  I copy the
cell, convert it to PICT+EPS and subsequently paste to MS Word
document.  Our LW II NTX refuses to print pages containing pictures
pasted in such a way after a Postscipt error.

Any pointers to solutions to the problems above are most welcome!
