Then print it. It's ok since I don't choose the 'justify' paragraph style. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Go to http://malat.free.fr/Justify.html 2. Print it 3. If you prefer you can also take a look at : http://malat.free.fr/Justify.ps.gz Actual Results: You'll see there are spaces after acute and grave accent but smaller space with cicumflex Expected Results: Respect spaces just as in Left/Right Or center paragraph style.
Summary: Justify + french accent cause stange space behavior in printing → Justify + french accent cause strange space behavior in printing
Confirmed. The postscript output from this page contains incorrect spacing after each of the accented characters. The circumflex-o appears to have a narrower than normal space following it; the other accented characters all have extra space following them. This is not visible in print preview; you have to print to a printer or file and inspect the result.

Reassigning to myself. jubei on IRC pointed to a similar problem at http://www.linuxprinting.org/kpfeifle/LinuxKongress2002/Tutorial/III.PostScript-and-PPDs/III.PostScript-and-PPDs.html

I am the "Jubei" Simon referred to in comment #3. I can be reached at my email address if I'm not on IRC. Note that the spacing errors demonstrated in the URL given in comment #3 are occuring on non-french characters. The non-letter characters such as quote symbols and the (R) symbol seem particularly susceptible. The page prints OK if the <p align="justify"> tags are replaced with plain <p> tags.
Also observing this bug on Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i586; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20021130 on Debian Woody. I remember having seen this bug months (maybe years) ago. It is an old one.
happens with any text with the text-align CSS property set to justify .
I think this is a dup of bug #144317 "Printing justified text with non-ASCII characters mangles spacing".
The bug is still there with iso8859-2 characters Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.5b) Gecko/20030722 Mozilla Firebird/0.6
I wonder how could developers see that this _is_ actually a show stopper. FOr instance: mozilla composer + printing could otherwise function as a cross-plataform wysiwyg text editor. Actually, more than one work of mine I'd have preferred to make inHTML, I had to put into an word processor because of this bug alone. Someone with the permissions to that will please: - assign it a (close) milestone to get fixed. - Change OS to ALL!
Did anyone check whether the issue is present in the attached sample printout (attachment 111634 [details]) or not ?
Created attachment 128868 [details] This shows the problem The existing atachment doesn't show the problem, since the words taht take an accend are not in lines witch spams to the full width of the page, with Mozilla breaking them. This attachment takes a more real-life text, and the nasty wrongdoings of the terrible BUG 182217 can clearly be seen.
Comment on attachment 128868 [details] This shows the problem Can you please attach the HTML source for this attachment, please ?

They are also a strange feature : 1) Set the text as justify (normal text, no "strange" character) 2) Select the justify Text 3) Print the selection Result : The printed document are "selected" (printed with the higlight) Testes on Mozilla 1.2.1 and "Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030624" and "Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.5) Gecko/20030917"
If this one is gonna be open forever could somoeone at least mark this as a duplicate of bug 144317? It is just not "french accents" that fails. As for this "print the highlited selection" new thing, I am not sure if it is related. I will make some tries now with iso-8859-x and utf-8 encodings, and also try this highlited selection. I shall post my findings on bug 144317, which is the older of both.
Marking as a dependence of 144317. They are several characters affected, and in slightly different ways. It might be a full duplicate of 144317, but we'd better have a full testing of all cases to make sure a fix to 144317 really solves all problems.
Depends on: 144317

Attachment testcase from comment 13 and URL from comment 0 work for me Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9a1) Gecko/20050816 Firefox/1.0+ Does it work (or still fail) for the rest of you?
WFM (Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050718 Debian/1.7.8-1sarge1)
-> WFM However, blocker bug 144317 is not fixed. So either bug 144317 not a blocker or fixed, or this bug is not whole dependent on it. Can someone with linux please check the testcase in 144317? (it is marked linux only)

The page: http://malat.free.fr/mozilla/Justify.html when being printed still behaves the same. Whitespaces are being inserted after non-ASCII character (in justify). The bug is still open for linux. I could not reproduce it with mozilla 1.7.3 on windows XP. I believe this bug can be mark as duplicate of bug #144317
Status: RESOLVED → REOPENED
OS: All → Linux
Resolution: WORKSFORME → ---
I confirm that this bug is still present (in Firefox 1.0.7 under Linux). Positive or negative whitespaces are inserted.
The bug is still present (in Firefox 2 under Linux); does not occur under Windows. Example: http://siteouebe.free.fr/public/ffbug.html How printing looks like: http://siteouebe.free.fr/public/ffbug.pdf
Bug is definitely fixed in Firefox 3 under Linux.
Thomas, does attachment 83440 [details] of bug 144317 also work for you?
