George and Gary,

if there's something that you improved on the original algorithm I  
suggested, using the gv -dNOCACHE option (what I called fontbegone,  
and Gary called -nofont), it would be nice if you could let me know.  
I'm referring to this message:

The reason is that this method is now also used in LaTeXiT. There,  
all you have to do is type your LaTeX formula, right-click on the  
output display to open a contextual menu, and then choose "copy as  
outlined PDF". Then you have the outlined LaTeX PDF output on your  
clipboard, ready to be copied to whatever destination you fancy  
(Including Illustrator). There's also a keyboard shortcut for this  
(press Apple-Option-Shift-C after the LaTeX run), which makes this  
solution the most convenient LaTeX-to-Anywhere tool that I'm aware of.

Obviously, any improvement in the method would benefit LaTeXiT, too.  
Unlike George (apparently), I have never experienced any problems  
whatsoever with my original fontbegone application, even though I use  
it at least three times a week on multi-page PDF documents with lots  
of graphics.
