Include all images in a portable PNG (or JPEG) format. Add a  
\listfiles line to the preamble(s) to get in the LOG an exact list of  
file versions. Insert an input encoding statement for TeX and also one  
as a text comment for the editor programmes used.

OS version, available disk space (344.9 MB is a lot and it can grow),  
which TeX distribution, which editor and which is its behaviour in  
terms of interpreting information delivered in the file's header.  
Which are her private TeX files? (And which are yours?) And you can  
ask her to send you the LOG file(s)!

Why "latex," i.e., why DVI output from computer middle ages? Who is  
going to guarantee that the generated PK files have the same content  
and their glyph shapes are equal in dimensions and quality and  
resolution? Why TeX Live 2007? We're in 2010!
