Thanks for the explanation and suggestion, Scott.  Funny thing is, plain
text output has actually worked best in most printouts here before in other
emulation packages.  HPT usually gets funny results on the output as
described some in my original post.  So I am hoping to find some
initializing in LP5250 that causes the alignment and font ID.  As soon as I
get around to reading it.  I'll let you know then.

Thanks again,

lp5250d converts the spooled file into a very simple text file.  It
doesn't even try to use different fonts, manage the margins, etc.  It just
sends a very very simple text file.

If you want more advanced functionality than that, as well as
finer-grained control, you should use Host Print Transform.

Unless, of course, you're willing to write an scs2gdi module for TN5250.
In that case, be my guest!
