[Xprint] Problem Printing Greek

I've just spent several hours over the course of a couple of days and can't
figure this out. I'm trying to get xprint to work so I can print greek web
pages properly. Actually I'm trying to "print" them to pdf or a ps file. I
can get everything to work great with english web pages but not greek.
I'm running fedora 4.
Installed xprint, xplsprinters showed me my printers and got the
xphelloworld to print to a pdf file just fine
I found out that the FC4 mozilla does not support xprint.
I rebuilt mozilla from scratch with gtk2
I can print using xprint from the new mozilla 1.7.12 build. English pages
work great greek pages don't.
Note that I have the MgOpen greek fonts installed which look fabulous with
mozilla and xft.
I did a ps -ef |grep Xprt and I did not see the mg fonts in my -fp path
which was setup by default by /etc/init.d/xprint
I googled around abit and found out about ttmkfdir and mkfontdir I ran those
two in the MgOpen font dir and created a .scale and .dir file. They seem
reasonable although one seems to be a copy of the other.
I did a /etc/init.d/xprint restart. The mgopen dir is now in the -fp path
I started up mozilla again printed again and it almost makes no difference
when viewing the pdf file.
I have a screenshot of what mozilla looks like with greek fonts here (This
is a sample of what I want to print):
The resulting pdf file (from /tmp/Xprintjobs):
Currently if I do ps -ef |grep Xprt I get
root 4634 4633 2 Dec14 pts/1 00:01:02 /usr/X11R6/bin/Xprt -ac -pn
-nolisten tcp -audit 4 -fp
Can someone give me a clue? This is driving me nuts. Please...
PS I use evince or xpdf to display the file.
