  * Advi does not (yet) support postscript fonts. It may be possible to do so,
    by either writing a full postscript rasterizer, or, like xdvi does, use
    gsftopk to transfrom ps fonts to pk ones. In both case a virtual font
    decoder is also needed. In the meantime, only TeX fonts are supported, so
    use those.

  * Advi has the capacity to use the \adviembed latex command to embed an
    arbitrary shell command into a DVI file. Thus it is recommended to launch
    advi with the -safer command to not execute such embedded commands (but
    then advi loses one of its main interrest) or first inspect the DVI file
    with the -n flag, and once you are sure there is no malicious embedded
    command, you can view the DVI file without risk.
