PS vs. EPSF?

Hi all,

This question is not *directly* related to writing, but I'm hoping that
with all the expertise out there, someone might have an answer to my
question. :-)

We are in the process of (preparing to) convert a large LaTeX document
replete with equation and figures to HTML for ultimate dissemination on
WWW. The LaTeX code is no problem. We have a translator which seems to
work pretty well. However, the figures were all created on a Mac using
Illustrator 5.0 which saves the files as EPSF. Apparently, we need plain
vanilla postscript files for the translation to work properly ... so my
question is two-fold:

1. What is the difference between ESP/EPSF and PS? I seem to
vaguely remember something about the bounding box ...

2. Is it possible to turn these existing EPSF files into PS
files - and if so, any suggestion how (again, consider the
macinstosh platform).

Thanks in advance for any insight. :-)
