hrm, using lpr (from cups-bsd i believe) and galeon the webpage prints
out much better looking using appropriate fonts, it appears that the
font size isn't changed however the font is, looks like clean-bold or
something (no serifs, blocky, maybe mono spaced)

so, kde-print or whatever its called told konq to change fonts then
print? like i said the page in konq. visibly changed fonts before the
print job as sent.

anyway that it happens it seems less than ideal as other programs seem
to figure out how to print the same page.

I'm a big fan of KDE, but for now I'll have to print from another app
unless its just a font setup issue.
