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.

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.
