What does TPSPrinter class do then?

Built-in fonts indeed don't have PostScript fonts.
And I don't know if the Newton can send PS fonts to the printers or
not. Sean probably knows. But I remember reading him saying that
fonts are the big problem of PS printing on the Newton (I never used
a PS printer with my Newton).
