As long as it's a valid PostScript file (according to the Adobe
specs), Ghostview/Ghostscript should be able to display it.

That's correct for the default case (for Mosaic 1.2).  However, the
latest ghostview is fixed so eventually we'll be switching back.  For
now, all you have to do is set:

XMosaic*postscriptViewerCommand: ghostview get the previous behavior from Mosaic.

BTW, to the list -- I see once again we're getting multiple
(apparently three) copies of every note to be sent to www-talk.  This
is starting to get surreal -- Tim, can you install a working mail
exploder for www-talk?  Otherwise, we may as well just all move to
Usenet where things are known to work...
