      I've always heard "RREU" (staying on the right side ;-) Right Reading Emulsion Up) because, it's not 'wrong reading' it's just the image is flopped.

      I'd also make sure to run your PS file through Acrobat Distiller if possible, and then send the resulting PDF to the imagesetter. If there are problems in the Postscript that preflight will save wasting film...
