Ah, I see it now! For a first start I'd recommend to extract the PS  
(Tricks) code from the DVI or XDV files. When it's different, then the  
"drivers" are not OK (XDV uses RGB while DVI uses grey values, which  
should be OK). Then see what dvips produces (it obviously starts the  
texts at the same y co-ordinate).

What is the definition in the PS Tricks documentation and in it's  
code, for ncput/ncput*, where it puts the beginning of text?

I'm going to bed now...



$ sumascii BILL GATES

  66+ 73+ 76+ 76+ 71+ 65+ 84+ 69+ 83 = 663

  and add 3 because he's Bill Gates the third.
