OK, I'll look at the hyperref docs for the proper incantations, if
they're in there.

OK. What TeX distribution are you using? tetex? I'll have to check
my version of pdfeTeX at home.

Maybe it's a tetex/gentoo specific thing... Other gentoo folk have had
this happen. Maybe those specific options don't trigger it - I'd have
to try and see.

Darn it.

Darn it.

I thought dvips either messed up hyperlinking or resulted in those
horrible boxes around linked text - has this changed now? Postscript,
as far as I know, does not support hyperlinking - that is (or was
anyway) one of the advantages of using pdflatex in the first place.
<idle thought> I wonder how much of the functionality of PStricks could
be implemented on top of xypic?
Cheers,
