I'm pleased for you.  I will one day try & tidy the script so it behaves
a bit more sensibly, doesn't fall over so rudely and uses xpdf rather
than gv, at the time I did it xpdf had a few problems which are now
resolved, and I believe the font rendering (on my machine, at least)
with xpdf is as good as AR.

But would be even better would be if I could get OpenType fonts to
