This has been addressed several times in prior postings to this newsgroup/mailing list. One approach is to configure your PostScript-interpreting device to download the Math fonts as needed. http://library.wolfram.com/mathgroup/archive/1999/Jul/msg00215.html The other is to embed the Math fonts in the file itself. http://library.wolfram.com/mathgroup/archive/1999/Nov/msg00004.html -- P.J.
