One more thing (printer languages)
Regarding printer languages. My old HP Laserjet 4ML had Postscipt, some TrueType fonts and so on. I have read some articles now about the printer languages for a number of printers, but it appears that PostScript is meant for Windows printers. (I was told by Brother customer support once that their equivalent of PostScript doesn't work with Macs, either.) It seems that PCL6 is meant for Window printers, too(?). GDI? Those and "host-based" printing are the options available on various printers.
I can't see any article that pertains to what is compatible with Macs. I'm sorry, but I seem to be quite stupid about all this: I really am not understanding what I'm reading.
I hope someone will be willing to help. Although I really would love to have a printer that would produce high-quality output of print and images, I'm ready to settle. No printer is much worse than one that doesn't print beautfully.
