What DVI file are you refering to? Those produced on your own 
system or the one in Colin's email? Since the font is updated
every now and then, a .dvi file in general is only valid as long
as you have the same Lilypond version installed as was used to 
produce it. If you have the problem on your own installation, 
please read in the installation instructions on how to get rid
of old font files when upgrading Lilypond.

??? How can you view a postscript file with Xdvi (unless you 
have included it as an .eps in another TeX document)?

> Colin,

I maintain that this has nothing to do with the problem Colin
describes. You have verified yourself that the PS and PDF files
look just fine (except for the fuzzy look of the PDF file due
to the bitmapped fonts).
