I ran the following in Mathematica 3.0 for Win95:

Plot[Sin[x], {x, -2Pi, 2Pi}, AxesLabel -> {"t","f(t)"}]
Display["test.eps", Out[2], "EPS"]

and then opened the file in GhostView 2.3 for Win95. Likewise, the
Y-axis label was displayed as "fHtL." Following the advice of one
respondent, I changed the  font path by going to Options:Configure
Ghostscript... There I appended ";c:<Mathematica
directory>\SystemFiles\Fonts\Type1" to the FONTPATH variable. And lo!
it works.
