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
something like:

	/NativeFont/ShanHeiSun-Light-ETen-B5-H def
	/NativeFont/Arphic-MingB5-ETen-B5-H def

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,
