All of the relevant bugs have been fixed for a while, since I revamped the output drivers.

And as for John's comment, PostScript now of course supports charts.

(These were in the user manual.  Reporting them on savannah now for consistency.)

PostScript driver bugs:

Does not support driver arguments `max-fonts-simult' or

Minor problems with font-encodings.

Fails to align fonts along their baselines.

Does not support certain bizarre line intersections--should
never crop up in practice.

Does not gracefully substitute for existing fonts whose
encodings are missing.

Does not perform italic correction or left italic correction
on font changes.

Encapsulated PostScript is unimplemented.
