I get a ps file huge in size. Apparently, the whole document is being converted in to a bitmap file.

This may sound stupid (but it may work): there's a pdf to html converter
that turns each pdf page into a graphic that then a browser can display.
Would this round-about method work if the image could then be turned
into a ps?

Given what I wrote above, ODT->PDF->PS is already an equivalent path as this.
