- Soft Fonts for LaserJet Printers
Laser Printer Soft Fonts
MS-DOS, Unix, Linux, IBM's eServer iSeries (AS/400), etc. - and Window's terminal programs - do not use the Windows scalable font system for printing. They rely on fonts resident in the printer.
Laser printers typically have several "built-in" hardware fonts. Some printers can then scale these fonts to produce different point sizes.
The quality of these fonts is usually better than those produced by the Windows Graphical Device Interface. However:-
Fortunately most printers support Hewlett Packard's "Printer Control Language" (PCL). This allows you to "load" additional bitmapped soft fonts into printer memory and access them from your software applications.
