I wonder if anyone has experience getting mathematica 3.0 fonts into an
eps file suitable for inclusion into  latex2e.  (I found a fix on
wolfram's site to handle the incorrect eps bounding box problem with
3.0 ps header file.) I managed to get the eps files included all right
into the latex2e file, but the special mathematical characters are

ideally I'd like to use some special mathematical characters in the eps
file. they need to be embedded in the eps because it'll go into the
latex file. hence I can't use their supposed "fix" given on the web
site that downloads the fonts to the printer (i.e. doesn't put them in
the eps file).

ideally either mathematica would define the symbols it needs in the epsf
file, or maybe someone has a slick utility that will add to the inside
of an epsf file the nonstandard fonts that are used  in it? that would
be pretty neat.

I suppose I could use that utility (forget the name) that puts LaTeX
fonts into the eps figure (that will be what I do next probably) but it
would be a bit of a letdown.

unfortunately the whole mathematica font files take up 700k or so so
putting the whole thing into each eps is unweildy.
