I have only just found your year-old MathGroup posting.  I am having the
same problem you describe (no boldface input cells when PRINTING under
UNIX; screen appearance is fine).  WRI is giving me the runaround --
pretty much insisting that I upgrade to release 3.0.2 before they'll
discuss it further, and not telling me whether anyone else reported
this problem.  So, did you ever figure out how to fix this?  If not, is
there a workaround?

I normally don't care about printing out notebooks at all, but I'm
preparing a journal article which includes some code excerpts, and
would like to produce figures with bold input.
