	this is not a requirement you want to fulfill. Since just about
everything is printed in postscript, you are out of luck, as postscript is
a horrible language to go into and look for stuff (come to think about it,
it just horrible). The only sane way to do it, it to look at the documents
*before* they are being sent to print. julius
