A few days ago, Norman Gifford sent me a wonderful instruction email on  
how to get around this problem. Unfortunately, I am not the one with  
the problem, and when I sent a reply to him, urging him to make those  
instructions into a PDF and make them available on the Net, my email to  
him seems to have bounced.

I hope sincerely that he sees this note, and does as I have suggested.
