If downloading the fonts to the printer is inconvenient, and you are willing to live with somewhat bloated EPS files, you may want to consider using the emmathfnt utility on MathSource. http://www.mathsource.com/Content/Enhancements/Graphics/General/0210-519 There is a snippet of code that is included with the toolkit that allows you to call a Mathematica function which does the font embedding automatically. -- P.J.
