Re: and problems printing boldface on SUNs

As previously reported, some UNIX systems fail to print notebooks using
the correct fonts.  In particular, boldface input lines (the default)
are not printed in bold.

This turns out to be because some versions of 3.0.0 were shipped without
the AFM font metric files for Courier!  The problem was fixed in 3.0.2
(and perhaps already in 3.0.1).  There is also a workaround:  The
missing fonts can be downloaded by following the instructions in (but
please note that the $TopDirectory path is given incorrectly, and
should be $TopDirectory/SystemFiles/Fonts/AFM).  The only font metrics
actually needed are for the 4 Courier fonts, and perhaps also the
Symbol font.
