More printer help

Some PAF5 printer problems:
**Buying a new printer helps
**We have found that on some printers, that getting the newest printer device driver from the vendor (Internet web site) will fix some printers.
**But, some printers like the Window's printer drivers better than the ones that came with the printer.
**We have heard that when multiple printers are used, when you change one driver it won't work until all the drivers are upgraded. I don't understand that one.
**Old DOS printers work in the graphics mode.
**Changing the font can also help.
**Some printers have a Use Multiple Language option, that can make it work with PAF5 but might not print for the Browser.

Because PAF5 is based on Unicode, the same as Windows NT we are finding new incompatibilies arising from old printer drivers made for Windows 95/98 that were not Unicode based.
