(The 3 renamed files can be placed in the same folder as the dvi.) What is likely wrong is the encoding, but if you have the original .tex files, that may be correctable. It appears that Times-Roman was used for only headings, and there were some small sections using Greek, so it should not be hard to locate the errors. Were the originals generated using TeXtures, which allowed the use of system fonts?

Sorry Alan. I never got the email with the .dvi file. I don't know why. However Michael Sharpe knows more about fonts (and Applescript!) than I could ever hope to know.

Good Luck,
