Description of problem:
When printing certain emails, for some reason, the font it uses
is this horrible unreadable frilly font. The email on the screen is fine, just
when you Print/Print Preview.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Read the email example I will provide
2.Go Print Preview

Actual Results:  You can see the font it previews is NOTHING like what was
displayed on the screen.

Expected Results:  It should have printed in a similar font to what the email
was displayed with on the screen.

Additional info:

This could be an evolution bug, a gnome-print bug, or both.

MBOX format mailfile, and screen caps at URL above.

And I just converted this big site from Outbreak to Evolution!

Solved. As it is an asian character set, it is calling up the asian fonts.
We didn't have the asian fonts installed, so it was substuring. As asian fonts
are in the same class as these "flowery" fonts, it was substituting to one of
these unreadable fonts.

Once we installed the asian fonts (And indeed ALL other fonts) the problem went

This should be a bug for gnome-print, there needs to be a few things, like some
dialog notification of fonts substitution, and perhaps flagging some of these
"flowery: fonts to NEVER be substituted to.
