sarchitect.ps

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:43.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/43.0 SeaMonkey/2.40
Build ID: 20160314164823

Steps to reproduce:

print page to file, both pdf and ps tried


Actual results:

viewing pdf file reveals very poor font, almost illegible and apparently not scalable.
As an example, printing:

I tried firefox and it prints with a clean font.

I cannot reproduce the problem, attached a PDF file which was created from the URL given, but it looks pretty nice. Same with Postscript.

Uhm,
it is definitely a problem with Helvetica, I eliminated it from the font-families on the page and it shows and prints fine. Perhaps you have different fonts installed than me.
But I wonder how firefox copes with it.
