Because "Latin" doesn't mean "Latin-9".

Something's clearly wrong, but I cannot figure out what.  You will
have to debug this yourself.  One thing I'd do is print to a file (use
ps-print-buffer with a numeric argument, and it will prompt for a file
name), then look at that file to see what stands for the accented
characters there.

That's not a good test: `print-buffer' uses an entirely different way
of printing, and also doesn't switch the printer into the Postscript

So you could redirect a2ps's output to a file and compare what it
produces for Latin-9 characters with what ps-print-buffer produces for
the same characters.

Sorry, I don't understand this.  Can you explain what it means?

If you print out the entire Palatino font in your printer, does it
include accented Latin-9 characters?

So you are using Latin-9.  I wonder if using Latin-1 instead will
help resolve your problem.
