Good summary, Oran, thank you.

Two further points:

Some printer drivers can be set so that Windows *doesn't* see the 
printer's fonts.  The driver for our Lexmark of a few years ago had a 
checkbox labelled "Do not report printer fonts to applications" (or 
similar wording), which I always kept checked.  Unfortunately, our 
current printer does not offer the same choice.  No big deal, since I 
use SetPrint anyway, but this info may help others.

I also advocate the use of PureText for pasting content from other 
applications.  After installation, Ctrl+v continues to work normally, 
but Windows+v pastes the clipboard contents with formatting removed. 
It's free:
