The reason Postscript printers tend to be "expensive" is that they tend to be high quality. Only cheap, crappy "desktop" printers of the sort that people buy for their home MS Windows systems, then replace when they run out of ink because replacement ink cartridges cost more than half the cost of a brand new printer, tend to be incapable of using Postscript. There are exceptions, of course, in the form of very expensive, highly specialized printers that are unsuitable to home or even most office use and don't "understand" Postscript. . . . but generally speaking, if it doesn't speak Postscript, it's probably a heap of junk anyway. That's my experience, at least. -- Chad Perrin [ content licensed PDL: http://pdl.apotheon.org ] Quoth Naguib Mahfouz: "You can tell whether a man is clever by his answers.
