Can you define what you mean by garbled?  If you're seeing character
substitutions on the parentheses 

			( -> H
			) -> L

Then that means that the device or application that you're using to
render the EPS does not have the Math fonts avaialble.  With
StandardForm and  TraditionalForm, grouping symbols like square
brackets, parentheses, and braces, are taken from slots in the Math2
family of fonts.  The character codes for parentheses (72 and 76)
correspond to H and L in ISO8859-1. When a PostScript interpreter does
not have "knowledge" of the Math fonts, Courier is used in its place,
resulting in the H and L.

See the FAQs at URLs:

for more information on possible remedies.

If the character substitutions I described are not what you mean by
"garbled", please let me know.
