Cool - nice work although the gaps need to be solved.
I think you noted that those gaps are there due to the
font file you used, right ?  If so can we get ANY help
from someone that can solve such issues ?  Anyone ??

yup, the font is the problem. we need a monospaced or typewriter font !!!

Is that something solvable ?  In other words, does the CUPS
developer know about this limitation and is there a plan to
deal with them (ie. to include 'em).

will do as soon as i get a reply to the patch. its been a week now and nothing from him.

BTW: I promised I'll look into this (as a tester) and I will, I've
     just been inundated with network problems and lack of access
     to the internet (not to mention a newly installed freakin
     proxy which I'd love to get around).

inundated <-- "busy" is much easier for the *ghalaaba"
