When I print special characters like "()=E0=E9..." they appear as "ODHL..." in the PS file. Is there a way to fix this? I've tried CharacterEncoding-> "ASCII", "PrintableASCII" "Adobe..." "Windows... "Apple... ISOLatin1 etc. with no special change in the output. I don't know how to add to ghostview special Mathematica fonts, and in fact, I'd rather not have to do this, because I may have to give ps to 3rd party people. How can I have access to a default font printing the most common characters? I guess ghostview an psrender use fonts with different character mappings though they have most of the usefull characters accessible. When I look in the PS file, the characters like "(" are actually replaced by psrender with an ASCII character "H" = F0 10. scalefont setfont (Front\351\350\341) show 166.741 235.028 m F1 10. scalefont setfont (D) show 178.741 235.028 m (H) show ^^^ as in here. I can fix the EPS file by hand by inserting ([) or (\().
