At this time, there is no way to generate PK versions of the Math fonts. Attempts by outside parties to use a tool like ps2pk to translate the Type 1 fonts have run into complications. The font glyphs are viewable only after the document has been translated to PostScript by DVIPS. >In printing, I can only print up to page for before I get a postscript >error.

There is an FAQ page on this at the Technical Support website. http://support.wolfram.com/FrontEnds/Export/TeX/DVIPS.html Later versions of both Ghostscript and DVIPS are susceptible to failure when processing a file that requires Math2-Bold. It sounds as if you may be using an older version of DVIPS and a newer version of Ghostscript. -- P.J. Hinton Mathematica Programming Group paulh at wolfram.com Wolfram Research, Inc.
