Dear Sir:

I found that the '-G' option is not compatible with some font encoding.
Specifically, when I use the times package by \usepackage{times} and run
dvips with the '-G' option, some of words are mapped wrong. For example,
all "fi" are changed to pound sign \pounds. Word "filter" will become
"\pounds lter". Without -G option, it seems everything is fine.
It seems -G option is trying to solve some of the problems. Without the
option, am I going to have problems with my ps files and the pdf files
using ps2pdf?

Best regards,
