[SciPy-user] Matplotlib font encoding problem

Matplotlib is doing something with its fonts that
is unfriendly.  E.g., Ghostscript and Distiller choke on
http://www.american.edu/econ/problems/matplotlib.fontproblem.eps

Ghostscript says it is an invalid front.

If I get rid of the verdana font encoding, the file displays fine.

I have the same problem when I try to use the TeX fonts.

I'm hoping there's a quick fix...
