[OS X TeX] Re: More on Illustrator 10 Font Problems with TeXShop / TeTex

	Thanks for the helpful suggestion of using WARMReader. I can see 
how we might use this in some settings, particularly those where we need 
to preserve a relationship between font size in the graphics and font 
size in the text, despite resizing of graphics (e.g. to make slides from 
a paper).
	However, it doesn't really help my son's situation, because he 
wants Illustrator to generate the final document for his Science Fair 
trifolds. He doesn't get them back into LaTex, so he can't get the 
labels into them that way.
	Right now, he is either doing the equations in Textures and pasting 
into Illustrator X or having to borrow my machine to do it with TexShop. 
His machine doesn't do this properly and he hasn't got time to debug the 
configuration of his machine before the Science Fair. In the long run, 
though, we'd like a reliable way of doing this conveniently, which most 
of the time would be to use Illustrator and TexShop (even if this has to 
be set to use Ghostscript).
--cheers, Gordon Sick
