My apologies if this is something obvious, but the man / info page
for dvips on my system doesn't have a -G option, and -P is used for
the printer you are selecting.  Does a newer version of dvips have
some sort of default pdf / www ``printer''?

Some version info (Debian unstable system):

    $ dvips --version
    dvips(k) 5.86e
    kpathsea version 3.3.7

    $ dpkg --list tetex-bin
    ||/ Name           Version        Description
    ii  tetex-bin      1.0.7+20011202 teTeX binary files

Thanks.  I'm always looking for yet another way to produce PDF from
TeX / LaTeX, since the results of such a conversion are so varied.
