The suggested additions to the Fonts panel should look something like this: Language (Western) -> Proportional Screen font -> Arial -> Proportional Print font -> Times New Roman Until Bug 95227 is fixed, Proportional Screen font should map to default.font, while Proportional Print font should map to a new pref (e.g. default.print_font). Prog.

Please make such a prefs depend on the printer (like "print.printer_foobar.print_font" for the printer "foobar", e.g. the prefs should be build like the other printer prefs).
Is this really such a high demand feature that it needs to be a visible pref? The font settings are already really complex...
(In reply to comment #2) > Is this really such a high demand feature that it needs to be a visible pref? > The font settings are already really complex... Ultimately, Bug 244439 will allow Mozilla to come with better defaults (Serif fonts for print, Sans Serif for on-screen display). These new defaults will provide a better user experience, but will also make prints look a bit different. The UI should make it obvious enough that print output and screen are not 100% the same (in terms of fonts), and that if they do need complete WYSIWYG, a relevant pref is exposed and easy to change. Perhaps this should also be added to the Print dialog. Prog.
Just to make it clear, in the last comment I wrote "they", but meant "users". Sorry for the spam, Prog.
This bug is about UI, right? Then why's it filed on layout???
