I have had a very minor problem with Ghostscript's ps2pdf when making
PDF slides to be shown with Acrobat Reader. I used

@PageEnclose { @Box paint { colour } @Body }

to get background colours other than white. PDFs generated with Lout
show this right, but ps2pdf leaves a narrow white margin (probably only
one or two pixels) on the right and at the bottom. Anyway, I
invariably need to include EPS graphics in these presentations and the
margin hardly matters, so I use ps2pdf. Ghostscript (ps2pdf) seems to work
just fine on more typical black-on-white documents, although unlike
Lout, it produces PDFs that are mostly not human-readable but contain
binary parts for some reason (compression? font embedding?).
