When clients running Middle East or Thai versions of Windows NT use a printer connected to a U.S. version of Windows NT Server with "substitute with device fonts" enabled, the printed output may display the wrong characters.
For example, when printing lines of pure English text, formatted with the Arial font, to a server that had codepage 1252 loaded at the time of driver installation, the wrong characters with the right widths may be displayed. It looks as if the printer driver has taken the glyph indices and treated them as ANSI character codes.
To resolve this problem, obtain the latest service pack for Windows NT 4.0 or Windows NT Server 4.0, Terminal Server Edition. For additional information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
