Thanks for your tips, sorry I didn't provide an update earlier: so many
things to do, so few time...
Maarten: I haven't tried your solution yet, due to one warning from the
dvips doc, saying (in essence) EPS files created in this way (i.e.
"dvips -E") are resolution-dependent and should be used mostly as a
last-resort solution. Did you experience this limitation, or is it
Actually it seems the problem lies in the font Math1.pfa itself, which
is marred by faulty encoding
and the only solution seems to be to patch the PFA file. Or possibly
get a more recent Mathematica (than v4.1), that would include a more
recent version of the font, but unfortunately that's not an option for
me right now.
Gary: Sorry, I haven't tried WARMReader yet. I had been under the
impression that it required essentially manual intervention, whereas I
was looking for an automated procedure, replacing tags (for examples
axes ticks) and fonts inserted by Mathematica by another font, but
keeping the horizontal and vertical positioning etc. In any case I
should try, that's true.
The problem so far for me has essentially been the doc: I think the
WARMReader doc is only available online as cascading HTML pages, and I
must confess I'm not one for online docs: I (i) prefer a printed
document, (ii) can work, if needed, with a PDF document or a continuous
HTML document which I can read online in the same way as a book, but
(iii) am pretty useless with online docs requiring the navigation
between several HTML pages. Generally after 5 or 6 such pages I get
lost or bored and give up.
For the moment I'm going on with the TeX + Ghostscript solution, though
I suspect I will get a bad surprise when I reach the final typesetting
stage and altpdflatex will have to process such a huge PS file in one
go (for example, a page will include 6 graphics, each of which being an
EPS file of ~ 50 Mb -- 3D plot on a 601 X 601 grid).
