 I can think of the following procedure to solve your problem:
 a) get the program HP2PICT by Don Gilbert from the IUBIO server (by FTP or
 Gopher). This program converts a HPGL file into a PICT file which can be read
 by, say, MACDRAW
 b) make SQUIGGLES create a HPGL file
 c) transfer this file onto your Mac and edit it with MACDRAW
 d) now, unfortunately, you'll have to place manually the letters on your
 Hope this helps. Good luck.
