Description

16 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2) Gecko/20021126
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2) Gecko/20021126

Printing upper mentioned page, text contains strange spaces after any ISO-8859-2
character. Output is unusable.

I am not sure, whether similar problem is not present also for small-caps (text
looks nearly OK, so I am on doubt, whether it is standard look of text without
kerning or not).

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open upper mentioned page or any other ISO-8859-2 page with justified text.
2. Print page.
3. Please note that print preview is OK.

Actual Results:  
Spaces between characters are wider than standard space between words.

Expected Results:  
No space inside word.

This bug occurs in all versions since the time, when mozilla started to print
ISO-8859-2.

unconfirmed bugs as "WTF" after some idle time closed the original report... ;-(

Gzip'ed PostScript job, http://www.spirala.cz/reinkarnace/prevt_karma.html page 1 printed using Mozilla's Xprint module (Mozilla 2002-11-21-08-trunk and Xprt from xprint.mozdev.org release 007)

Solution as usual:
Install Xprint's server side, after that you should be able to print
non-ISO8859-1 pages without problems. See
http://www.mozilla.org/projects/xprint/ , http://xprint.mozdev.org/ and
http://xprint.mozdev.org/releases/ for further details.

Attachment shows much better result, but it also contains incorrect (much
smaller) spaces after zcaron, tcaron and (at least lowercase) rcaron.

Dup of bug 182217?

It looks like bug 182217 will be duped to bug 144317. So, maybe this bug should
be duped to 144317, as well.
