You can produce postscript output from every MacOS X App using a 
"virtual" printer: in Print Center add a TCP/IP printer with address 
"localhost". With this you can than save the ps-file (or pdf) via 
(this is all explained in the Apple-Help!)
You can also do ps2epsi on this output without converting the linefeed :-)
