It may be a particular Windows/Scribus/pdf issue with my 
system/HP 1018 - or not, I don't know - but the Scribus 
printed output looks distinctly different from the Tex and 
Open Writer; the same as my Scribus (1.3.9) to pdf output 
when I _don't_ "Embed PDF": The printed output looks a bit 
jagged under a loop as when the font is converted to outlines.
