Sure, the PostScript renderer is far from being finished. :-) The
renderer still has problems with some fo constructs, fonts and even DSC
(as you mentioned). If you need good quality right now, you should use
Acrobat Reader on Unix or GhostScript to convert PDF to PS. That's what
I still do. Improving the PostScript renderer is still on my tasklist,
but I've got so much to do that it hasn't come to the top of the list,
yet. Sorry.
