No, if the PostScript font is screwed up then it is the Qt PostScript driver. 
This has been an issue for some time.  This has been improved some with the 
latest version of Qt (3.3.2).

Part of the issue might be the fonts.  You want to be certain that you don't try 
to print the XFree86 bit mapped screen fonts, and you should have the TrueType 
fonts that the web page uses installed on your system:
