Well, we did try the aforementioned command, but when we would try to print a 
column report, we would have to manually change the printer to compressed mode.
By using the -T switch and specifying (sp?) an *EPLX810, then we didn't have to
worry about manually changing to compress mode, as the command would translated
by the host. Of course, we still got embedded spaces throughout the report, and
some columns wouldn't align properly. We reproduced the same report, in case it
was a fluke happening, with the same results.
