This is what I get in the postscript buffer.

 [/h1 (~/)]

/HeaderLinesRight[
 [/h0 /pagenumberstring load]
 [/h1 (10/15/12)]
]def
2 SetHeaderLines
0 BeginPage
/f0 F
false BG
0.000 0.000 0.000 FG
0 EF
(\344\366\337) S
PHL
EndPage
EndDSCPage
EndSheet

%%Trailer

EndDoc

%%EOF
-=-=-=


When I save it as xxx.ps and then double click this file, it will be converted 
to Postscript I an print it.
It will be printed immediately, the printer will not ask for letter paper.
