Re: getting planetary symbols to print

the problem is, that the PostScript font uses an encoding vector, that
assign a name to every glyph in the font. PostScript use always
this names and never a number. Mathematica uses internal numbers
and if there is an error in the encoding vector of the fonts
Mathematica will not show this error and the error
remain undiscovered.

The planet symbols are rather new in the Mathematica fonts and
the fonts have eincoding errors for the planet symbols and
so the PostScript interpreter can't find the proper glyph.

I have reported all encoding errors and AFAIK this will be fixed
in the next version of Mathematica.
