ICRA is almost finished and so is the deadline. We still doing a last proofreading. However, there are a lots of problem in preparing a PDF. First, IEEE requires that all font is embedded. There are some problem in my Distiller, I can not make the .joboptions file from IEEE to work with my Distiller. It keep s saying that the font "Times-Roman" can not be found in the system. I change to GSView to convert my ps to pdf but still, the result pdf does not have "Times-Roman" embedded in. Okey, the problem might be my machine but no other machine in our lab has MikTex or GSView. I change to linux and use ps2pdf to convert. The correct option is

ps2pdf -dCompatibilityLevel=1.3 -dMAxSubsetPct=100 -dSubsetFonts=true -dEmbedAllFonts=true -sPAPERSIZE=a4 DRAFT1.ps

However, we still have more problem. JFIG has some bug when rendering the EPS. (Or that is what I think)
