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

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
