I had problems to use pdflatex with more advanced tex files (eg using
pstricks) so I had to use a different approch. Since on this group ps2pdf
was mentioned, it was just a point to make that one can give there
arguments so that 1.3 fonts are used and tumbnails are produced etc. Of
course, more advanced features of pdf can be incorporated only by
pdflatex, but see above
        I was not arguaing against your pdf file anyway.
