# [texhax] dvips inverting text

Hi,

I am generating eps files from LaTeX with by running dvips and then ps2epsi.

When I try to embed these eps files in a new latex document, the resulting dvi
looks ok, but for the dvips and ps2pdf output, the text in my figures is
inverted. Also, \documentclass{article} seems to work, but
\documentclass{revtex4} and \documentclass{prosper} result in inverted and
sometimes offset text, or worse, a corrupt pdf.

The original eps file can be found at
http://people.ccmr.cornell.edu/~dd55/temp/AF13-7.eps
and a sample pdf output is here
http://people.ccmr.cornell.edu/~dd55/temp/test.pdf

Here is the latex source:

\documentclass{revtex4}
\usepackage[dvips]{graphicx}
\usepackage{times}
\begin{document}
\begin{figure}
\includegraphics{AF13-7.eps}
\end{figure}
\end{document}

I should note, if I comment /usepackage{times} (which is the same font used to
create the eps file), the pdf resulting is corrupted.

If anyone could offer a suggestion, I would really appreciate it.

Thanks,
Darren
