That way will give the best result. Afterthat you can also convert to pdf for web publication, result will always be very nice. I often used this procedure, Mathematica is then a powerfull grapher for LaTeX ! In fact .dvi files only include a preview of your eps illustrations that is only useful for page layout. -- "We all know what light is, but it is not easy to tell what it is" S. Johnson cited by R.
