The greek letters included in EPS files require the Mathematica fonts to be available to the visualizer (and the printer for printing). Solutions are : a) include the Mathematica fonts in the Postscript file. I do not remember if this is valid for EPS files and the fonts are copyrighted, which may be a problem if you are going to export the Postscript file containing the fonts. See : http://www.wolfram.com/support/FrontEnds/Printing/FontsInGraph.html If the EPS is to be included in a LaTeX document, make the fonts available to LaTeX and reference them in the reamble. b) Make the Mathematica Postscript fonts available to the visualizer. I did it once for XDVI. c) For printing only, you can download manually the Mathematica fonts in the printer. d) Forget greek letters and set FormatType to OutputForm in Mathematica : http://www.wolfram.com/support/Graphics/NoMathFonts.html ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Jean-Michel BARBET E-Mail: barbet at subatech.in2p3.fr Laboratoire SUBATECH Nantes France Tel: +33 (0)2 51 85 84 86 CNRS-IN2P3/Ec.des Mines/Universite Fax: +33 (0)2 51 85 84 79 ----------------------------------------------------------------------
