Printing gibberish from certain web pages

If you’re getting gibberish when printing certain web pages to a laser printer, the problem is that the web page content providers have changed to a font which the laser printer doesn’t have built-in. The solution is to go into the Printer folder, right-click on the printer, and left-click Printer Preferences. The FONT setting may be on an 'Advanced' tab (varies from manufacturer to manufacturer). Anyway, change the Font default of using resident fonts, to always downloading the font info along with the web page content.
