Thanks, this seems to do the trick. Is there no way to make my source
"compatable" with both?  Ie. no changes needed wheter I run with
pdflatex or latex?

Hmm, thats the opinion I am begining to form too.  I did not know about
the -Ppdf option for dvips, so I was really just looking for scalable
fonts.  Since I don't need hyperlinks, or any other fancy things, I
think I'll just stick to ps2pdf then.

Thanks
