RE: NEW bloat in PDF file sizes....

My bad. I'm using the 5.1.2 driver with the HP5siMXPS PPD. 
I know, I know, but my hard drive went bad and I'm using 
someone else's machine until IT gets done with my new 
drive.... (two weeks and counting :-(

BTW: Using TIFFs didn't help. I'll try EPSs and see what 
happens. I want to be able to put this on a floppy...

And of course, you hopefully are NOT using "the HP5siMXPS driver" (whatever
that is)
to produce PostScript for distillation. You should be using the AdobePS
5.1.2 driver
with the Acrobat Distiller PPD. In fact, there should be a printer instance
"Acrobat Distiller" that is associated with the correct PPD and will
route your PostScript to the Distiller in the background.
