	I'm sure this problem has come up before, but I must not   
have appreciated its significance at the time..
	On a NeXT running OS 3.0 I have been using TeXice to prepare  

Encapsulated PostScript `swatches' of LaTeX output, which I intend to  

paste into Mathematica notebooks in order to produce nice equations.   

{We're using conventional TeX pk fonts, not re-scalable PostScript  
fonts.)  Despite warnings from Mathematica [version 2.0 here at work,  
and 2.1 at home] when the PostScript is inserted in  the notebook,  
the swatches **appear** just fine when viewed in the Mma  notebook,  
and when the notebook is previewed (from the NeXT print panel) they  

also look just fine.  However, when actually printed, the equations  
appear on separate sheets, and are entirely disconnected from the  
notebook. {While these notebooks were printed 4-up, the misbehavior  
still exists on conventional 1-up printing.)  The same appears to be  
true of other apparently otherwise well-behaved PostScript graphics  
when inserted into a notebook.   

	Has anyone succeeded in circumventing this problem??
