In my case D and B come out instead [ and ]!!:) You have a font problem! In my case, it needs to install the fonts X and Type1 (probably only X) in your system (Unix?). You must install this fonts on your workstation. If you are using a server, they are probably installed here. On Unix, you should copy the font directory in /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts or some similar directory and run (in the directory) mkfontdir: this create the fonts.dir file and the fonts are right installed! You can find information on the www. This may suffice. If you have not an Unix system i dont known but i think you can find information on the net. Nicola
