Yes, 4.1 with Windows XP.  Thank you, it worked like a charm.

|I'm assuming here that you're using 4.1 or 4.2 under Windows (if not, what
|I'm about to tell you won't work).  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

|making this change, hold down Control+Shift while restarting.
