Not sure that's the only cause.  Documents created by LaTeX and
converted to PDF have the same problem.  They look great in gv and xpdf,
and look like crap in Acrobat (in Win).  The PDF docs print nicely from
either platform.

Is it perhaps more related to gs?  My ignorance of fonts is legendary,
so where do we go from here?
