Here's what I did for my document:
\(sr\z\(address@hidden@
(where
.EQ
delim @@
.EN )
Perhaps eqn could do that as well?
And I'm not saying that the glyph is ruined on large fonts: I'm saying that
each character overlaps, like in the other guy's original PostScript output.
I must've gotten confused by what he said.
