### Font Encoding in a Postscript Document

Hello,

This seems like it should be a pretty common problem, so I'm not sure what I'm missing.

When I compile a document with the fontenc package (T1 option) to postscript, the text doesn't display.

Actually, the text does display if I also have mathptmx loaded. Likewise, if I have tipa loaded, any text specified as IPA (\textipa) will display correctly.
%LaTeX => (DVI =>) PS => PDF\documentclass{minimal}\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}\usepackage{lipsum} \begin{document}   \lipsum\end{document}

Note, that if I compile to DVI the text shows up. Likewise, this isn't a problem in the conversion of PS to PDF; when I view the PS document directly, there's no text. I'm using MiKTeX 2.9.

Thanks for any insights on what's going on here.
