    I have a 1992 Laserjet 4M works fine when I print my writing. I think it is a Postscript 2 printer and has 600 dpi resolution and prints 8ppm. It has 2 Mgs of built-in memory. Fine for my needs. I would have to buy more memory, which I can't afford now.

    The problem is drivers. I use Word 2002. I think to make my printer work I had to download Laserjet 4M+ drivers because it said the LJ 4M was not 600 dpi. Because my printer is old, I don't think it was supported internally. I print my work out beautifully. Downloads are a different matter.

    When I download documents produced with TrueType fonts--there is the rub. I invariably get the message:
    ERROR: invalidfont
    OFFENDING COMMAND: xshow

    [66 69 64 38 68 65 67 65 38 57 65 68 69 65 43 38 68 64 38 68 30 65 64 65 0]

    I have tried clicking on graphics scalable font substitute device font in the advanced print options. I can't solve it. I have click clicking on the catalog of TT fonts somewhere in MS Word--I still can't get any TT fonts to print. Help! There are lots of web downloads I want to print and can't.

    I have ordered some business software, and want to be able to print out the manuals when it arrives. What can I do? TT won over Postscript.

    I NEED A WORK AROUND OR A WAY TO FIX THE PROBLEM.
