Does that work with PDF files too?

Sort of... You can create a .ps file and then run ps2pdf to generate a
pdf file from that. I usually automate this process by writing a very
simple-minded makefile, so that I can compile the TeX as I'm editting
in Emacs.

On occasions, I've seen this messes up some fonts slightly in the pdf
for mysterious reasons. Sometimes it happens, and sometimes it
doesn't. I'm mystified.

I prefer the epslatex terminal.  You can convert the PS part to PDF
and the TeX part which contains the labels is processed by TeX, so can
contain any TeX fonts/symbols/whatever.

Never tried that. I'll look into it. Thanks for the suggestion!
