.ps files generated by C-u M-x ps-print-buffer-with-faces seem to have
problems. It seems it can only be viewed by ghostscript. Open it on OSX
shows no text in it.

I have asked the question on TeX on Mac OS X Mailing List as well and
got a few interesting replies.

1. A user try to print such a ps file and get no text either.
   (http://article.gmane.org/gmane.comp.tex.macosx/36581)

2. The PostScript file does not include any fonts. It's not 100%
   compliant to the standard. It can't be opened in Illustrator CS3:
   http://article.gmane.org/gmane.comp.tex.macosx/36547 and
   http://article.gmane.org/gmane.comp.tex.macosx/36554

The whole discussion can be found here:
