I had a look at the patch, but while it "worked" in one sense, it was
not "correct". My generates the correct DSC comments for the fonts
and encodings/charsets, copes with some of the idiosyncracies of
multi-byte printing in GhostScript, and allows the use of Courier for
the ASCII code range. which the patch (and previous attempts) did
It also allows the user to define their own modified character set.
I believe there are code ranges in various national character sets
marked as private, which allow for the specification of special
characters to be printed for certain codes. I haven't documented
this bit since the main thing is to try out the new options and
generated output. Once that seems to working I can describe how to
use custom character set definitions for printing.

getting through to me. I'll try and remember to view the archive on
Yahoo groups, but people may want to cc me on any emails until the
problem is sorted.)
For that rundown feeling - jaywalk.
