Problem solved. Re: problem with a slash when converting form eps to pdf

I upgraded to Ghostscript 8.51 (not sure why I had an old version).
And it works now.
Sorry to bug you all,

Hello -

I made a simple figure with a slash in a text label:

from pylab import *

plot([1,2,3])

xlabel(r’$a^2/b$’)

Then I save this figure as EPS and convert to PDF using Ghostview.

What happens? In the EPS file the slash between a^2 and b looks great,

in the PDF file the slash has disappeared.

Has anybody seen this before?? Any solution?

Thanks,

Mark
