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: http://www.wolfram.com/support/FrontEnds/Printing/FontsInGraph.html http://www.wolfram.com/support/Graphics/Formats/EPS/Ghostscript.html for more information on possible remedies. If the character substitutions I described are not what you mean by "garbled", please let me know. -- P.J.
