Apologies if this has been discussed here before, but I ran into the 
following problem (using TexShop 1.14 and the one but latest teTex 

I had some plain text with diacritics (Umlauts on u, o, a). I used it 
to produce slides, with documentclass "slides", and a document, with 
documentclass "article". The pdf's of both looked fine on screen, yet 
the printed output was different. The slides ouptut had several 
misplaced characters, whereas in the document output everything was 
fine. (Both were printed on the same laserprinter.) In the slides 
output the character carrying the diacritic sometimes was printed 
over the next character to the right, sometimes it was were it should 
be. This happened with various characters with umlauts, in a 
seemingly random way (some a-umlauts were ok, some were not; and the 
same for the others). What puzzles me is how the same source in 
diferent LaTeX documentclasses can produce output that looks the same 
on screen, yet prints out differently.

Has anybody any idea what is going on here?
