I run in some trouble when printing a Mathematica 4.0 (Linux) notebook:

I have a small notebook and printed it to a file. Then I looked at it
whith ghostview and everything was fine.
No I printed the odd pages and then the even pages on the back side of
the sheet. But now, on the back sides the umlauts and some other
characters dissapeared (eg the °). If I print the file in one step
everything is displayed properly.
Does Mathematica produce strange ps-code, is this a ghostscript bug, can it be

Another question:

1. When printing I select papersize A4 - works ok. Margins are set to 1".
   But the margins are much smaller when printed. Why?

2. How can I set the default paper-size to A5. I tried the options
   inspector (settings papersize) and to enter 597.6 for width. But no
   Input is accepted there. Should I add PaperSize->{597.6,842.4} in my
   default notebook-file. But where? And where can I enter default

Any help would be greatly appreciated
