I tried to use eps2eps too and saw the same: PostScript fonts get 
rendered to bitmaps!

Maybe ps2epsi is a better optimizer. It generates as output a new file 
which conforms to  Adobe's Encapsulated PostScript Interchange (EPSI) 
format. (EPSI is a well-known form of EPS that has at the beginning of 
the file in the form of PostScript comments a bitmapped version of the 
final page.) This file still has the PS fonts. Usage is simple:

	ps2epsi file.eps [file.epsi]



How many Microsoft engineers does it take to screw in a lightbulb?
They just redefine "dark" as the new standard.
