Why do you want to stick with PostScript? What is holding you in the 

To render PS correctly you either need to include all in that document 
used fonts and encodings in that file, or you add these fonts to gs' 
Fontmap.GS. Then ps2pdf{,12,13,14} will be able to convert that file to 
PDF. If the PS document contains all fonts, Apple's pstopdf can do that 
conversion too -- quite often.

If your PS file come from (La)TeX documents, you should directly create 
PDF and view it in TeXShop. That application allows you to magnify the 
text portion to an optimum value and the you adjust the text portion in 
the TeXShop frame to see all of it -- and this adjustment is kep for 
every page!

You could try the X11 application gv (http://www.gnu.org/software/gv/) 
to view PS.
