Hi David,

Sorry for the very long delay, I'm very short in time these days.

Well, printing package uses ps-print package to generate a PostScript file to be printed.

And ps-print does not deal with all face attributes. At present moment only the following face attributes are used by ps-print: bold, italic, underline, background color and foreground color.

The variable ps-font-family specifies the font used by all ordinary text to be generated. The default is 'Courier.

When ps-print was created (1993), there weren't face attributes like font family, width and height.

So, I don't think this is a bug, but a missing feature.

Great; thanks.  So could you consider my report a feature request?

Yes, for sure.
