The printer software's print preview (if set to be called instead of the printer upon telling TB to "Print") already shows these bogus characters, so the transformation has to take place between the print command and the reception by the print driver. This might be an issue with non-ASCII characters in general and might occur with other Mozilla products too. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1A. Open a mail with umlauts in them (German spam for example) OR: 1B. Write yourself an e-mail with umlauts in it and open it upon receiving it 2. Open Print Preview for the mail 3. Print the mail 4. Stare at the result lying in your printer 5. Repeat Actual Results: The umlauts are all wrong (� becomes z-dot, צ becomes u-ring, ...)! Expected Results: The umlauts should be all right! Problem occured with stable 0.5, 0.7.1 and 0.7.1 German (www.mozilla-europe.org). The printer in question is a Hewlett-Packard hp deskjet 959c.

(In reply to comment #1) > Alan Plum, do you have a sample message that exhibits the problem? Please save > it as a .EML file and attach it to this bug. Eh. I would love to, but for some reason Thunderbird now keeps on crashing on me whenever I try to save a mail. Just copy these characters into an e-mail: Ä ä Ö ö Ü ü ß And print it. If it doesn't come out the same way it looks on screen, I'm not imagining things.
