More on Windows printing...

But - somehow MS word manages to look the same between both. Not to
sound paranoid or anything, but I tend to imagine it was designed that
way on purpose to make it tougher for competing programs.
I figure there should be some fonts where the metrics are roughly the
same between printer font and screen font. So far, Modern and Verdana
come closest, with Modern printing a little under the screen font width,
and Verdana printing a tiny bit over the screen font width.
Does anyone know how MS Word manages to keep them the same?

You should be able to use any TTF with Rev. The issue with different
font metrics is a Windows problem, not a font problem. This issue does
not exist on the Mac, for example.
Arial is a good example of a TrueType font. However, the printer
metrics are still different from the screen metrics. Go figure.
Two "real" solutions: print a bitmap containing the text (slow and
painful, resolution can be a killer in terms of both speed and
quality), or switch to the Mac (not always an option when developing
for other people to use, but hey, I had to suggest it anyway; it does
work correctly on the Mac).
