Printing Disaster (slightly renamed)

I would still appreciate it if one of you guys with printing trouble
would give my windows printing script a try. It works great for me - and
after some recent tweaking it can handle multiple font sizes on the same
line, and subscripted characters.

I don't know if it will work for others' uses, but it would be good to
find out. If you try it and it does not work, I won't be offended or
anything. I will just use the feedback to keep tweaking it until it is

Which Win API will make their font metrics identical to OS X's?  Or do I

misunderstand BZ#2520?

Dan Friedman had a different issue related to line widths, but I 
couldn't find it in BZ.  Dan, what's the #?
