Description Joshua Buysse 2000-12-17 16:51:35 EST
Please switch to using enscript instead of mpage for conversion of text to 
postscript - mpage doesn't use a specific font.  It uses the margins and a 
66 (I think) line page, and stretches the Courier font to fill.  This 
produces distorted output, and I've had several of my users yell at me 
about this.

mpage now speeks japanese, and that requires us to use it.
