legend issue while embedding fonts in eps figure

Hello!

I am creating a plot and I select the font type to be TrueType (by using rcParams['ps.fonttype'] = 42).
I am using this image later on in a tex file and when I am creating the pdf file I check for the font types and I see
name type emb sub uni object ID
[none] Type 3 yes no no 160 0

But if I comment the legend while making the plot then I do not get a Type 3 font.

Why is that? It seems that the fonttype does not apply to the legend (or am I missing something?).

Best

Thanks to this post ( http://nerdjusttyped.blogspot.gr/2010/07/type-1-fonts-and-matplotlib-figures.html)
I used the rcParams['text.usetex'] = True (after installing dvipng) and the final plot had only Type 1 fonts.
