No, this can't be printed in ISO 8859-15! Although my printer has PostScript 3 and is younger than the European currency unit it only knows Adobe-StandardEncoding, Adobe-SymbolEncoding, Adobe-CEEncoding, and probably too ISOLatin1Encoding and Adobe-ExpertEncoding. To print the ISO Latin-9 glyphs from the above mentioned range the font needs to be encoded correctly.

I think it's able to print in all ten ISO Latin scripts.



The light at the end of the tunnel has been turned off due to budget cuts.
