Nicer than Type 1 fonts?

By the way, is it true that the Adobe's Acrobat Reader, which most of 
people are using to read PDF files, has some problems with PostScript? I 
have no idea, I use Ghostscript and gv, but I've heard something about it.

I suppose it's not true, I can't believe Adobe could make a tool having 
problems with PostScript (they invented it, after all), but I'd like to 
make sure before I publish any paper in PostScript online.

A friend of mine has been sending his CV in PostScript and later started 
to send it as PDF, because most of people have told him, they couldn't 
read it, but they probably just didn't know what to do with the .ps 
file, I guess.

Thanks a lot! These are really great texts. I live in Poland and after I 
just started reading those texts you linked to, I have already learned 
lots of things about Polish alphabet, which I didn't even know before. :-)
