Is there anything I can do about it? The Mathematica font files seem to have names that are not too helpful - i.e. you don't see Courier, Times, Helvetica etc, but numbers. What is 'Mathematica5Mono-Bold.pfa' supposed to be for example - anyones guess really. One might hazard at a guess it is a bold version of a monospaced font, but nothing more than that. I have at the minute included the Mathematica fonts, but they are on the *end* of the font path. I don't know if that is searched in order, but if so, perhaps there is an advantage in putting the Mathematica fonts in front of the Sun X ones, although the mathematica binary appended them on the end. "xset q" shows my font path includes both /usr/local/Wolfram/Mathematica/5.1/SystemFiles/Fonts/Type1 and /usr/local/Wolfram/Mathematica/5.1/SystemFiles/Fonts/BDF but they are at the *end* of the list of about 10 font directories. -- Dr. David Kirkby, G8WRB Please check out http://www.g8wrb.org/ of if you live in Essex http://www.southminster-branch-line.org.uk/
