Description of problem:
When I have text in Abiword that is set in the Arial font (which I
have to use as it is used in a form that I have to fill in) and I
print to either PostScript or PDF, the resulting printed text has
overlapping letters. I attach a PostScript file demonstrating the issue.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Execute "abiword print-test.abw", where print-text.abw is the .abw
attachment to this bug report
3. Select print to file in PostScript format
Actual Results: The PostScript file contains text with bad spacing.
Expected Results: A PostScript file properly reflecting the spacing
that Abiword displays during editing.

That looks a lot better in FC3. Looks correct to me now.
