The fonts in the figures seem to be the same high resolution
as the text. So this point seems mysterious.

I have the impression that the problematic program
is Adobe Distiller. I'm not completely clear on what happens
in the Springer production department. I think Adobe Acrobat,
Reader and Distiller are all broke for Type 3 fonts.

No, I didn't ask because at this point in time (before
TeXmacs 1.0.3) this seemed impossible. But they didn't
object to the exported Postscript files until they
took a look and found the Type 3 fonts, so they were
at least willing to consider them.

Yes, the book used svmono.cls.

But this can and does cause problems.
