Further to the above posting I have obviously got an encoding problem but quite how to get the right settings is not clear to me. (MacOS8.5.1) (V4.0.0.1 of Mathematica) 1. I should have put \241 above because the code is octal. 2. The degree symbol is should be 176 or \260 I think, however modifying the .eps to use this code produces a _ or something similar when distilled. The EPS files do not seem to have any particular encoding information thus it is not obvious where the assumption that the font was a Windows font in Courier Type 1 Windows Embeded Subset Type 1 comes from -- Nigel King - Radio Systems Consultant, KingComm Ltd email: mailto://king at dircon.co.uk web: http://www.king.dircon.co.uk/ Office: +44 1364 642454 Mobile: +44 7713 080166 Home: +44 1364 642265 Fax: +44 1364 642454
