2.3 Important parameters

Many things are parameterizable in a2ps, but two things are just essential to make sure everything goes right:
The paper
Make sure that the paper a2ps uses is the same as your printer (See section 3.1.3 Sheet Options, option `--medium').

The encoding
Make sure that the encoding a2ps uses is the same as the standard alphabet in your country (See section 3.1.6 Input Options, option `--encoding').

Both values may be checked with `a2ps --list=defaults'.
