When I specify the height of an "MS Sans Serif"-font as 59 pix, and when I
send a text in this font to the printer, it is replaced by some kind of a
default font. I tried it with different heights, and until now it only seems
to happen with Height = 59 pix. With the font "Times New Roman", everything
works fine. Does anyone have an explanation for this? I find it difficult to
believe that the printer (HP Deskjet 710C) wouldn't be able to handle the MS
Sans Serif 59.

Thank you,

>When I specify the height of an "MS Sans Serif"-

MS Sans Serif is a bitmapped font. This means the font at various
sizes is composed of bitmaps. Times New Roman is a scaleable TrueType
font. This means that the font can be scaled to any size.

You shouldn't be surprised that font substitution occurs on a printer
when you're using bitmapped fonts. If you don't want font substitution
to occur, use TrueType fonts.
