Yes, but Framemaker is owned by Adobe, so there is also some chance they're
doing it right, although that has never been a guarantee.

I'm using R 0.62.4 and a fairly recent version of Framemaker (5.5.6).

I could write my own little filter as Brian suggested, but I thought other
people were probably having this problem too. If putting this in would break
other application's filters then perhaps Ted Harding's suggestion of having
"EPSF-3.0" as a user selectable option is the best answer.
