Art Welch, out PCL expert, is not around so I'll try to help you as good
as I can. Disclaimer: I'm no PCL expert. I've had a look at the
programmer's manual for my Brother HL-1250 which is a PCL printer. It
doesn't support ZapfDingbats. Looking at there's code
that should trigger the selection of a ZapfDingbats font. But I think
not every PCL printers has the same fonts pre-installed. Unfortunately,
the PCL renderer doesn't support embedding fonts, so I guess you're
stuck with this problem.

As a possible workaround, try to generate a little bitmap from the
checkbox in an image editor and use that.

I hope this helps a little.
