HEWLETT-PACKARD TO ADD POSTSCRIPT COMPATIBILITY TO ITS LASER PRINTERS

It announced that it would be adding PostScript compatibility to its laser printers (CI No 673) but Hewlett-Packard is not enthusiastic about the decision: We repeatedly tried telling people why they may not need it, but we found that approach wanting, Steve Simpson, marketing manager for office printers told Microbytes Daily; he suggested that PostScript had few advantages over the Printer Control Language already used by all Laserjet printers, one of them being algorithmic font support – which no desktop publishing software supports anyway; he also claimed that PostScript was about 30% slower than its Printer Control Language.
