Created an attachment (id=7614)
 --> (http://bugs.ghostscript.com/attachment.cgi?id=7614)
postcript testfile, which produces a distiller error after converted with


i have problems with the compatibility of the ps2write output
with Adobe Distiller and other Adobe based RIPs.
Some fonts seems not to be converted correctly.
I have attached a small postscript test file (distiller_ps2write_font_test.ps),
containing one of the problematic fonts and showing some text with it.
Distiller 5 ander Distiller 9 have no problems with converting this file
to pdf.
If i use Ghostscript to convert this file to ps using the ps2write device
Distiller 5 and Distiller 9 produces a error if i try to convert the output to
pdf. It seems that the distiller have problems finding the 's' character.
Ghostview have no problem showing the ps2write output correctly.
