The PS output by boxshade can be modified with Adobe Illustrator or
Aldus Freehand. You'll require a _fast_ computer for this since every
letter is handled as a single object, as is every shaded box behind
the letter. A PowerMac 6100 with a native version of one of the programs
mentioned above is fine for sequence alignments which are not longer than
one page.
