Hi Herb,

As always, thanks very much for your very fast and helpful reply. The
file printed fine on my machine (OS 10.4.11) using the same printer. I
had searched the 'net a bit and it seems to be a generic problem for
OS 10.5.x. I was surprised that it had never brought up in this forum
before (I asked the same question for my boss a while ago).
