Yeah, it's actually turning out to be a lot harder than I thought to  
clip a perfect square of the exact same dimensions out of several  
different vector PDFs. Preview lets you crop a selection, but doesn't  
allow you to constrain the selection to a square. And ImageMagick  
doesn't seem very good with vector graphics.

I appreciate the suggestions, though, and all the time you've put  
into XeTeX. This is straying off topic, but does anyone else know of  
a relatively easy way to accomplish what I'm trying to do?

Thanks again,
