I've never tried AR6 to do that. Two years ago I worked with AR 4.x and
5.x and printed to a Fiery RIP for a Xerox DocuColor 12.

That's right. Acrobat Reader 6.0.1 doesn't seem to send an embedded EPS
to a PostScript printer. It works with 5.x (just tried) and I think it
worked with 4.x.

Yes, but it seems the EPS is fine if it appears under GhostScript 7.04.
I may be however, that Acrobat 6 doesn't work with the EPS because they
expect an EPS in a different way. That would need some investigation.
But probably they just removed support for EPS files altogether. You
could ask Adobe directly...

Yep. What I don't get is why it doesn't work in GhostScript 8.x. I
though in earlier versions of AFPL GhostScript it worked. But then, we
may still do something wrong the way we embed EPS files. Maybe asking
the GhostScript people would also be an idea.
