Math Fonts in EPS-exported graphs

I want to save/export graphs as EPS files with greek symbols on the axis and use them independently on the machine where Mathematica is not installed (for example a printing bureau). Then I face the problem that the MathFonts are not available and printing gives unsatisfying results. On the FAQ-pages I found that one can force Mathematica with FormatType->OutputForm to use only keyboard characters. But then instead the symbol for chi the letters 'chi' are used which is not what I intended. Experiments with FormatType->TeXForm showed the greek symbols between the environment switches for equations in LaTeX ($ \chi $). Question 1: Is it possible to have Mathematica use the symbol fonts of any free TeX distribution? With Text[] one can specify FontFamily but I do not know how to use it for non mathematica fonts. Question 2: If the receipient of the eps file would have the MathReader installed, would he have automatically the fonts available? In this case one would have quasi freeware fonts and DVIPS should work on any computer where MathReader installed. Is that right? Any hints for me? Stefan
