Define "scrambled characters"?  When I open that attachment, everything looks 
fine except for character spacing - in particular all of the "n"s seem to be 
too close to the next character, and the same happens in a couple of other 
places.  If yours is more scrambled than that, it would appear to be specific 
to your PDF reader or installed fonts, rather than to the output of the 
ps2pdf program.
