The information in this article applies to:

Microsoft Windows 95

SYMPTOMS

In some international versions of Windows 95, you may encounter the
following problems when you print to a PostScript printer:

High-byte glyphs (non-ANSI glyphs) are printed as ASCII characters
instead of the appropriate international character.
Some TrueType fonts (such as Arial, Times New Roman, and Courier)
are printed as U.S. ASCII characters instead of Hebrew or Arabic.

CAUSE

TrueType font substitution is enabled. You should configure your printer to
always use TrueType fonts.

RESOLUTION

To configure your printer to always use TrueType fonts, follow these steps:

1.Click the Start button, point to Settings, and then click Printers.

2.Use the right mouse button to click the PostScript printer, and then
click Properties on the menu that appears.

3.On the Fonts tab, click the Always Use TrueType Fonts option button.

4.Click OK.
