   I was going to blame hp, but my brother printer (HL5170DN) does not print 
it either - all I get is a postscript error:
   ERROR NAME;
      invalidfont
COMMAND;
    stringwidth
OPERAND STACK
   --stringtype--

   The ps is probably sent to you printer, which is -apparently- not 
configured to report postscript interpretation errors, so you don't see 
anything.

   Sorry I can't be of more help, but at least it does not look like it's the 
fault of your printer driver.
