Forum OpenACS Q&A: Re: Printing with printer control fonts from HTML

Posted by Brian Fenton on
Hi David,
Thanks for the feedback. Yes, I already considered that. There are 2 problems with that:  firstly, the manual doesn't explain any of that kind of detail. It simply says to select the control font and print that. I've tried printing to file, saving as text, anything else I could think of, but I can't extract that kind of information. The second problem with that is HTML only permits 3 control characters: Horizontal tab, line feed and space, so even if I knew the characters, I've no guarantee HTML will be able to print them.

I've been scouring the web all week. I don't understand much about fonts (or Windows programming in general) but there seems to be almost no information out there about how browsers handles fonts, specifically printer fonts. Odd.
