summary:     8023990: Regression: postscript size increase from 6u18

causes a regression:

The discussion is here:


The PS printing path is definitely expecting 8859-1 but the current code is giving UTF8, causing the wrong character to be rendered. The character set used should be ISO-8859-1, not UTF-8.
This is a regression of JDK-8023990, which was introduced in 8u11.

The email thread contains the details and my evaluation. Since the original fix was backported to JDK7 I think this fix needs to be backported there too. I believe in JDK6 the fix was different so it isn't necessary there.
