Open the following file in a text editor: $TopDirectory\SystemFiles\FrontEnd\TextResources\PostScriptHeader.tr where $TopDirectory is your Mathematica installation directory. Use your editor's find command to search for the following text: /acute/.notdef Replace this with /acute/mu There will only be one instance of this to replace. Now restart Mathematica and re-create your EPS graphics. Everything should work perfectly. If you experience any problems restarting Mathematica after making this change, hold down Control+Shift while restarting.
