Ah, I'm beginning to see your problem, I think. So you used cmr fonts
for labeling, etc., on the graphs? I.e., you got Kaleidagraph (I used
that for a while before switching to Igor) to use the TeXtures fonts?
And you saved the graphs as eps to be imported by your TeXtures
document? So maybe the problem all boils down to getting OS X to 
handle the TeX fonts on a system-wide level, so you don't have to 
reconstruct these graphs with the fonts embedded. But then, would they
print correctly on a postscript printer? I can use TexShop on OS X to
typeset and open the resulting pdf in Ac. Reader or Preview, and the
fonts work, and it prints, so i guess the fonts are embedded. But I 
haven't tried to create something using the TeX fonts with any other
