I want to take some plots generated in Mathematica (which contain Greek
labels) and insert them into a MS Word 98 document so that they will
print correctly to a PS printer which does not have the special
Mathematica fonts. It appears that the Mathsource tool -"emmathfnt"
which embeds the Math fonts in an existing Mathematica-generated EPS
file should provide the solution to this problem. I am performing this
task on a Macintosh and have encountered two problems:

1) The Readme file indicates that the tool will not work with EPS files
generated by Display[] or Export[] when called from the standalone
kernel.How then, am I supposed to save the Mathematica plot as an eps
file ?

2) What is the exact syntax of indicating to emmathfnt the path to the
Type1 1 Fonts. I used the standard path format
(HardDisk:Folder1:Folder2:...) for the MAC, but it did not find the Font
