thx so far, you're right Alan. It seems it is quite a special not
(only) TeX related problem...
I try your link. Mysterious that Epson wrotes on their site, that no
major changes were made from Panther to Tiger :-) ^^
But I have another thing. Is there any good doc or can somebody
explain the document types ?
I mean, what is DVI, PS, PDF, Metafont... How did it all work. Is PDF
only a container (because it needs the fonts...) Some kind of vector
Converting all that to each other...
I hope you understand my question...
