```Hi!

I know I've seen the answer to this question somewhere on this list,
but a search through my archives (as well as a frustratingly long time

How does one using *TeX*, get EPS figures into a PDF file using
pdftex?

Right now my TeX file contains:

\input epsf
\centerline{\epsfysize=5.5in\epsfbox{figure.eps}}

I was able to convert the 'figure.eps' to a PDF using epstopdf,
but the only inclusion macro I found was in the 'supp-pdf' input file:

\input supp-pdf
\centerline{\pdfimage{figure.pdf}}

This works, but I can't figure out how to scale it to an appropriate
size (the figure is larger than a piece of paper).

Also, several months ago folks were discussing problems with fonts in
the Acroread 5.  Did these issues ever get resolved with Adobe (OK,
just kidding!) or does a new version of pdfTeX solve the font problems?

Thanks!

Chris
