[Axiom-developer] creating high quality pdf files

Dear Tim,

there was an discussion about creating high quality pdf files from TeX
source (respectively ps files). I benefitted from a short Makefile a
colleague of mine, Jan Kruerger, hacked in to compile his thesis.
        The relevat part for teh AXIOM book is the one which gives the
options to the p2pdf command, so that good 1.3 fonts (thumbnails etc) are
created. pdfs created this way look quite good.

Perhaps this helps for texing a smoth pdf version of teh AXIOM book, which
could be uploaded to svannah's file area?
