FEATURES OF HEWLETT-PACKARD HPPCL5E PRINTER DRIVER VERSION V1.08

****************************************************************

The Hewlett-Packard HPPCL5E Printer Driver version 31.V1.08
includes support for the HP LaserJet 4/4M printer and the
following new features:

Support for 600 dpi Printer Resolution.
The user can switch between 300 and 600 dpi printer
resolution via the switch in the setup dialog of the
driver.

Support for Graphics Quality.
At 600 dpi mode in the LaserJet 4/4M the driver
supports graphics resolutions of 600, 300, and 150 dpi.
At 300 dpi mode the driver supports 300, 150, and 75 dpi.
The actual graphics resolution settings are denoted by
the descriptive terms of Low, Medium, and High rather
than the actual dpi.

Support for the TrueType typefaces.
All the resident TrueType typefaces in the HP
LaserJet 4/4M printer are supported. Other TrueType
typefaces are supported by building outlines from
the typeface and downloading the characters needed on the
fly. All of the internal TrueType typefaces in the HP
LaserJet 4/4M printer are supported in the 19U symbol set
with the exception of Wingdings in L$ and Symbol in AS.

Hewlett-Packard has made the TrueType format screen
fonts available for the 35 Intellifont format typefaces
in LaserJet 4/4M. These screen fonts are available through
your local Hewlett-Packard dealer and are not included in
this package. TrueType equivalent screen fonts allow for a
more closely integrated Windows 3.1 solution.

Support for the internal Intellifont typefaces.
All the internal Intellifont typefaces in the HP LaserJet
4/4M printer are supported in the 19U symbol set. To obtain
WYSIWYG results, use HP Intellifont which supports
on-the-fly screen fonts to match your printer fonts in
Windows 3.1.

Support for HP-GL/2
Support for HP-GL/2 is in version V1.08. Under the Options
Dialog in the Printer Setup, a new option of "Graphics
Mode" is available. Two options are present: HP-GL/2 or
Raster. The first choice enables HP-GL/2 which will
increase print performance but may possibly cause 21 Print
Overruns in some applications. The second choice disables
HP-GL/2 and uses raster only. The default for Graphics Mode
is HP-GL/2.

If you do encounter print difficulties in the default
Graphics Mode, it is recommended that you change the
mode to Raster and try your print job again. Additional
information on this topic may be found in the help files
that accompany this driver. Choose Help from the driver
dialog screens or the HP font installer screens to access
the HELP information.

Dialog Support for Resolution Enhancement technology
Another feature added to the Option Dialog is the
Resolution Enhancement technology box. The options here
are: Printer Default, Light, Medium, Dark, and Off.
