   On my Linux system, `URW Bookman L' is a Type 1 font.

   The following file:

\font \X "URW Bookman L" \X

   produces a small pdf file which

   (1) displays nothing when viewed with `gs'
   (2) displays correctly when viewed with xpdf
       or acroread

   I attached this file to this email.

   Is this a feature or a bug?
