I having all sorts of trouble with trying to get fonts to match up the
rest of my LaTeX document in publication figures. I find that output
strongly depends on the format and that I actually get the absolute
worst results with EPS - whereas I would hope for the absolute best
result with that format (b/c it's a vector format). Well, here's an

top = Graphics[{Thick, Line[{{0, 0}, {5, 0}}]}];
bottom = Graphics[{Thick, Line[{{0, 2}, {5, 2}}]}];
labelZ = Graphics[
   Text[StyleForm["z=0", FontFamily -> "cmmi10", FontWeight -> Bold,
     FontSlant -> Italic, Black, FontSize -> 24], {5.1, .1}, {-1,
     0} ]];
geom = Show[top, bottom, labelZ]
Export["C:/af/Lines.eps", geom];

I'm using cmmi10 due to the recommendation of SWP guys. Perhaps I
should use a different font or output to a different format?

Many thanks in advance!
