Thanks for this information, Barbara!

Since the beginning of Mac OS X, including 1.0, there has been a way  
to print to PDF built into the printer driver that comes with the  
operating system. It is hard for me to imagine why anyone would want  
Ghostscript for Mac OS X...but you are right that Ghostscript is  
great for other operating systems...we have used it in DOS, for
