I am trying to enter Symbol font with extended ASCII char set.  That is if I want to enter the diamond symbol, I select the font like this


Then enter diamond octal code within vim editor by typing ctr-v then octal code of 250.  When I next run enscript command with -e option and I view PostScript output I sure see the diamond symbol but it is preceded with special R letter (with  code 302). This happens everytime I try symbols with code >127.  I played with clean7Bit with no use.  I even opened the ps file and sure enough I see the \302 everywhere.  Why?  Thanks, Fuad.
