I just tried your suggestion. From the virtual printer, I can choose
ps or pdf for the output. When I choose ps, I get a file starting with

%%Creator: cairo 1.8.0 (
%%CreationDate: Wed Nov 11 22:06:56 2009
%%Pages: 1
%%BoundingBox: 0 0 612 792
%%DocumentData: Clean7Bit
%%LanguageLevel: 2

>From the cairographics webpage, I see that the fonts are always subsetted 
and embedded. Later in the file, I find

  Encoding 1 /uni222C put
  Encoding 2 /uni006D put
  Encoding 3 /uni006F put
 /sfnts [  

which corresponds to the unicode characters I typed. Finally, when I open
the file on a computer which does not have the DejaVu fonts, the "postscript" 
correctly displays the text with the DejaVu fonts. So what do you think ? 
I may be fooled by the headers, I don't know much about postscript.

BTW, Am I wrong, or emacs23 now depends on cairo for 2D display ?
