Hummm, but isn't there a way to add a ã to the PS output from the
drscheme code even if it's a very wierd hack, I only have this
character once in the whole presentation (in my advisors
name). :)

Thank god my presentation is in english, otherwise I couldn't use
drscheme. However, I'll have to do a presentation in portuguese
in the end of July. Do you think 299 will be out by then?
