Ahh, I suppose it would've worked for other LaTeX documents; but in my case, some of the glyphs I use in my orthographic transcriptions are from the more esoteric parts of the TIPA font, which requires the T3 encoding. For some reason, that seems to force it to come in type3... I'm still trying to figure out if there's a way to force everything to come out in type1. I tried the dvips -Pwww trick, but it didn't seem to do much. I'll have to investigate this a bit more. But anyway, all this trouble is more than enough to convince me that the simplest solution would just be to encourage more people to use GSView :-) T -- There are four kinds of lies: lies, damn lies, and statistics.
