** "Custom" encoding can define an unicode font. 

With a PS latin font you have ANSI encoding in the properties...

** Several options can be use for PS and (or) PDF with Ghostview.

- That said, about convertions, some programs make embedding of

fonts in each page, before make one file... Maybe explain the hug

file generated... Junicode, especialy regular one, take a large place

when embedded. Maybe find the Postscript font version of junicode,

called junius, covering only standart latin encoding.
