problem rendering GIF formatted files

Hello Group,

I encountered this curious problem.

A Mathematica code produces a GIF formatted file containing text objects 
and other graphics.
When this code is executed from a notebook, the rendering is perfect: 
Text fonts and colours are ok.
But, when the same code is executed directly from the Kernel using a 
MathML mechanism, and thus without first launching the Notebook 
interface, the rendering is wrong: fonts and font colours are lost.

In the code the font and colours are set with the TextStyle option.

I guess that the Notebook Interface initializes a some of params, wich 
are not set when the Kernel alone is launched.

Any idea how to catch this one?
