The document:


seems to claim that it was written with TeXmacs (it would be shame with the 
TeXmacs author himself used TeX or LaTeX to create it)

I noticed, however,  that in the document properties in acrobat viewer it 
mentioned that it was created using PDFTEX.

Usually when you create a postscript with TeXmacs, it has bitmapped fonts.  
Converting it to a PDF file usually results in ugly and unreadable fonts on 
scrren. Doing some reading over the net I found that what you really need to 
do is use Type 1 fonts when you intend to create a PDF file.  They also have 
some instructions on how to do it with TeX.

From the quality of the above PDF file it seems that it is using Type 1 fonts, 
and not Type 3 fonts.  Can someone please tell me what you need to do to a 
TeXmacs file to create a high quality PDF file?  Maybe Joris can explain this 
since he is the one who created it.
