PS printers and software RIPs (namely, ghostscript as it is the best
know and more widespread) have a limited repertoire of known fonts,
the (in)famous "LaserWriter 35), be it in ROM or disk. Everything else
must be downloaded; be it to the printer disk, RIP library directories
and configured accordingly; or downloaded with the print job. The DESC
file makes sure the latter happens with groff output.
