> However, it would be nice if the DVI viewer worked properly, for two

Postscript opens up the Pandora box: using the \special hack, you can do
lots of weird things that require a full PS interpreter to render. So you
should rather compare 'PDF rendering' with 'PS rendering'. DVI rendering is
fast as long as you stick to DVI and do not use any \special. One of the
hacks that it is (well almost) impossible to render with a dvi viewer
without resorting to full PS conversion is the one used by the 'psfrag'

If you are using TeXLive, you can have a look at the
Files to see what the dvi viewer can do. Anything not in the range of the
example might be displayed incorrectly.
