Description Jens Petersen 2005-05-16 15:45:57 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #126265 +++

From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040510

Description of problem:
The PostScript file which was generated from UTF-8 html can't be
printed out correctly. the result of the printing shows some boxes
instead of proper glyphs.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.show UTF-8 html, such as README-ja.html in RHEL3
2.print out or generate to the file, and look at it on ghostscript

Actual Results:  some boxes are shown/printed out instead of proper glyphs

Expected Results:  proper glyphs are shown/printed out

Additional info:

mozilla has some tables to convert the string. if depending on
ghostscript or PostScript level 3 printers is no problem, mozilla can
uses UTF-8 CMaps directly to print out the UTF-8 strings instead of
complex PostScript code.
