Thanks a lot for trying it out. Yes, the code works, if I remove the 
optional parameter I am getting the same tree, just longer and with 
the branches "hitting" the nodes... What I am trying to do is to make 
it work _with_ the optional parameter _and_ with Tex and Ghostscript 
option of the TexShop. I need a lot of small illustrations like that 
for a large project  I am working on and it would be unpractical for 
me to use latex, dvips, and pstopdf on the entire file, because I am 
using a lot of other packages and options .... and the deadline for 
submitting the 400 + pages manuscript is just one month ahead of me 
so I am not quite into much experimenting right now... As far as I 
could gather from the information on pstricks, the tex + Ghostscript 
way should theoretically work fine... but apparently it does not... I 
wanted to avoid having to create the illustrations somewhere, then 
cutting and pasting them into the document as normal graphics... But 
thanks so much for looking into the problem! I will look around on 
the archives, perhaps it something that others have noticed 
already... Thanks a lot anyway!
