Dear all,

I have very odd problems with my PRN files.

I am using the Univers-Condensed font and instead of using the format bold
I am using the Univers-CondensedBold font. The files are created in Word
and I am printing to a Xerox DocuTech 135 printer, using the PRN format.

When I looked at the files in GhostView (before writing them onto CD-Rom
for the printer), most of them, except for one, looked fine. The one that
didn't seemed to partly overprint the text left and right of bold text.
However, I thought that this was down to a problem with the screen
resolution. It wasn't though.

However, I now found that in some files the bold text was randomly
distributed over the paragraph, preferably to Capital letters. This didn't
show up when I first looked at the files in GhostScript... now it does.

I am at a complete loss what's happening. I had trouble with PS files
before, but nothing like this!

Any ideas?
