Why are all characters invisible in some eps files?

In Adobe Illustrator CS4 ai and eps files are perfect showing all characters in Arial or Symbol fonts.
When eps file is opened in Paint Shop Pro, all graphics are present but all characters: (a...z) are invisible.
Open up in Adobe they are there again.

I am not experienced with Paintshop Pro, but I am efficient with Illustrator. From past experiences using other graphics programs to edit Illustrator I have encountered a few problems. I will list the solutions I used, maybe it will work for you.

1. Flatten Transparency before saving as EPS.
2. If you don't need to edit the text in Paintshop Pro, you could always turn the text into outlines (select the text bounding box by clicking the black selection arrow and then click on the text, go to text>create outlines). NOTE: Make sure you do a save as if you use this method so you don't accidental overwrite the original and ruin the edit-ability of your original text.

Thanks for your comment.
In fact, it is when viewing this one esp file in Latex that the problem arose.
I have done this successfully hundreds of times before.
I went into PaintShop only to verify if the same thing happened there and it did.
So I'm thinking I have inadvertantly changed a setting on this particular file when in Illustrator.
Are there fonts that can be exclusive to Illustrator in some way?

Tried flatten raster and that appears as you say to render editing impossible, so I exited without saving.
Next time I open the eps, and saveit it appears to have recovered all fonts in Latex.
So I would like to know what flatten raster is for.

To Flatten the image is sometimes important when sending a file to a professional printer, or if it is going to be opened in another graphics program. If you don't flatten the transparency then it is very possible that the results won't be the same as you see on screen. The raster is simply creating an image out of any line-art or text  (it can no longer be edited).

The reason they have the Text>Create Outlines is: There are some effects you can't achieve with the text as is. By creating outlines you have more options for styling. This isn't ideal for paragraphs, but more useful for special effects on text. I used to use it to ensure the font wouldn't get changed when I was sending a file to a printer or a client for review. Now I have learned to save it as PDF. PDF is editable and it embeds the fonts if you choose that option while saving.

Have you tried saving the Document as a PDF? Does Paintshop Pro recognize PDF files? If so, you can export your .ai file as PDF and select to retain Illustrator Editing, then open it in Paintshop Pro. Maybe this will solve the issue.
