Hi George,

do you have a link or page handy for testing? I guess netscape
substitute the fonts for printing, I had trouble to print CSS pages - It
didn't look like the screen, also I had my ghostscript fontmap altered.
Saw some japanese pages recently, but didn't try to print these. This
involves the way netscape prints (printing under X is not connected to
display as in Windows), which is unknown to me. ;-( (I belive Netscape
uses it's fonts, or the "next near" for replacement)
