I like the following Setup:

Retreive the HP4 WSCST
edit it and change the two CPICOR: tags
 to the following:
If you want 13cpi use:  ASCIIFNT = 204
                                          FNTWTH   = 110

We just put a new HP4050N Network printer on our LAN and setup the AS/400
to printer to it via TCP/IP.  The printer definition has the following

1.  Width = 132 columns
2.  Auto rotate = Yes
3.  FontSize = 10 dpi

When we print a screen that has 132 columns the fonts are real small and we
have about 3" of unused white space on the right margin (Landscape).  We
would like to use another 2 inches of the right margin and have the fonts
set to 10-13.3 dpi (or whatever it takes to enlarge the fonts).  The
printer it self is set to 10 dpi.  Any ideas?  Thanks for any help.
