I'm trying to use Mathematica (version fonts in LaTeX documents
(Windows, MiKTeX). The installation is correct, I think, but when running
dvips I get the following error message and dvips stops:

<wttbo8a.pfa> Second number not found in Char string of '/FontName'

I have met the same problem earlier with an earlier version of Mathematica
and MiKTeX, but I don't remember how I fixed it. There is also some
information about similar problem in the WRI FAQ list, but it does not
concern this font.

I'm using pfa fonts, because the distribution does not contain pfb fonts
(required in the file, where I have made the change pfb -> pfa).
Running the same tex file with pdflatex gives correct result.

Has anyone met the same problem? How should it be fixed or are the
fonts corrupt?

Thanks in advance!
