It is best upgrade these to use 2.10-5, which I uploaded two weeks ago. :-)
2.10-1 did not use defoma, and hence can't be used for printing.
You may want to run the following commands:
apt-get install psfontmgr x-ttcidfont-conf
apt-get install ttf-arphic-bkai00mp ttf-arphic-bsmi00lp

Your setting should work after psfontmgr and the new ttf-arphic-b* packages
are installed. However, I recommend using "Arphic-MingB5-ETen-B5-H",
or better yet, "ShanHeiSun-Light-ETen-B5-H". ShanHeiSun-Light is the
original PostScript font name stored in bsmi00lp.ttf. In Debian, the
original PostScript font name is used as the default, and Arphic-MingB5
was added as an alias to maintain compatibility with CLE. (Actually,
the Debian JP developers wrote /etc/defoma/hints/ttf-arphic-bsmi00lp.hints
for me. :-)

Same here. Doesn't seem to matter. What is important is that you see
in the PostScript file.

You may start mozilla with any LC_CTYPE and it should still handle CJK
printing correctly if unix.js is set correctly. :-)
Hope this helps,
