Straight Ascii Text Printer Driver?

I use Netscape as a front end for a public workstation setup.  I want to be able to print straight text to a file or print queue.   I tried using the generic/text only printer driver, but it has problems, it seems to be set up for an old line printer, rather than straight text.  If the text to be printed has bold characters, the bold characters are printed twice.  If the text is underlined, an underline consisting of dashes will be printed on the next line.  Other attributes affect the output as well.  Someone suggested cutting and pasting to notepad or somesuch, but that's too confusing for the user.  I just need a printer driver that ignores all formatting and prints straight text.

In order for your printer to print text text not graphics text from Windows you must not use True Type fonts. You are able to recognize the non-TTF because draft or plotter or vga res is written in paranthesis after the name of the font when you check them with Control Panel -> Fonts.
