"HP-oriented special text" won't even help; this printer isn't smart
enough to understand text; it requires the computer driver to more or
less drive the print heads directly.  I think that gimp-print somehow
managed to put together a "driver" for it, which means you should be
able to get it running with CUPS.  You can install gimp-print through
the ports system, but there probably aren't many other people using
this printer with FreeBSD to give you direct advice.  This printer is
extremely expensive to operate, and most of HP's work on it went into
a Windows driver rather than into the actual hardware.
