Re: [R] problem with pdf() on Mac Os X

I had this problem last fall. It went away after a while, and I believe the "fix" was an OS version upgrade. Later, I was sending PDF files created with R to a colleague. When I viewed them, the labels were there.
When he viewed them on his computer, they were not displayed. He upgraded his OS, after which they
were displayed.

Here is my version information, and note that I have a later version of the OS (10.3.8).

> version

platform powerpc-apple-darwin6.8.5

arch     powerpc                 
os       darwin6.8.5             
system   powerpc, darwin6.8.5    
major    2                       
minor    0.1                     
year     2004                    
month    11                      
day      15
