      Description

      When printing the content of a QWebView to a regular laser printer, fonts appear slightly smaller than they should.

      // Test case
      // ------------------------------------
      #include <QtGui>
      #include <QtWebKit>

      int main(int argc, char** argv)
      {
      QApplication app(argc, argv);

      QString html;
      html += "<html><head>\n";
      html += "<style type=\"text/css\">\n";
      html += "<!--\n";
      html += "h1

      {\n"; html += " font-family:Arial,sans-serif;\n"; html += " font-size:1in;\n"; html += "}

      \n";
      html += "-->\n";
      html += "</style>\n";
      html += "</head><body>";
      html += " <h1>This should be 1 inch high.</h1>\n";
      html += "</body></html>";

      QWebView view;
      view.setHtml(html);
      QPrinter printer(QPrinterInfo::defaultPrinter(), QPrinter::HighResolution);
      QPrintPreviewDialog dialog(&printer);
      dialog.connect(&dialog, SIGNAL(paintRequested(QPrinter*)), &view, SLOT(print(QPrinter*)));
      dialog.exec();
      return 0;
      }
      // ------------------------------------
