Michael, 

In the A4 case, the printer driver has access to the Mathematica fonts 
and in the A0 case it does not.  Similarly, GhostView needs help to 
access them. 

The nearly same question was answered on MathGroup recently.]

We use our own fonts because we want the parentheses to display
consistently whether they're being displayed at normal height, as in your
example, or whether they're being stretched vertically (and similarly for
brackets and curly braces).

But the behavior is easy to turn off.  Choose Format->Option Inspector...,
set the scope to global, and look for the "OperatorSubstitution" option.
Set it to False.  Then re-evaluate the graphics-producing commands, and
re-run the Export[] command again.
^^^^^^^^^^^ 

If that is not available in 4.0, there is an old Tech Support 
FAQ that does what you need.

One can also embed the needed Mathematica fonts in the EPS file.
