[help-texinfo] text from xtide to eps

I am using xtide (tide -l "Hilo, Hilo Bay, Hawaii" -b "2007-12-01
00:00" -e "2008-01-30 00:00" -m t -f p > /media/vista/xtide.txt) to
produce files of the format:

2007-12-01 12:05 AM HST   Moonrise
2007-12-01  1:51 AM HST   0.84 feet  Low Tide
2007-12-01  2:45 AM HST   Last Quarter
2007-12-01  6:38 AM HST   Sunrise
2007-12-01  9:03 AM HST   2.26 feet  High Tide
2007-12-01 12:45 PM HST   Moonset
2007-12-01  4:25 PM HST   0.54 feet  Low Tide
2007-12-01  5:40 PM HST   Sunset
2007-12-01 10:43 PM HST   1.50 feet  High Tide

I want to include this information in a monthly calendar using pcal.

The problem is that there is too much data to fit into the daily box.
It spills out of the box to the right and below.
pcal allows you to specify font and size of the event text but I want
different fonts and sizes for tide, moonrises and sunsets.

pcal allows you to specify an eps file instead of text.

Can I use texinfo to automate the process of converting one days worth
of tide data into a custom eps file for a years worth of data for
inclusion into the pcal date file?

Is there a better suited tool for this purpose?
