I want to thank Mark Schwartz and Martin Meachler for their suggestions re
conversion to pdf.
Obviously, the problem was witht the conversion software used --
GhostScript/GSView solved it.
Thanks again Marwan

I don't have your full code, but I used barplot2() in R 1.6.2 under
WinXP Pro to generate a simple bar plot with two bars in the colors
that you have above. I can generate a .PS file and then convert it to
.PDF using GhostScript/GSView and default settings without problem.
The colors are properly retained.

Can you provide your full code so that I can exactly replicate your
plot and specify what program you are using to do the PS to PDF
