Our LaserJet 5L seems to get perplexed printing out complex tables from Word 97.  It'll spew out
some ascii characters and start misaligning the text from the tables.  I tried setting resolution down to
300 dpi.  But problems still exist.  Any recommendations?

Try to use an hp 3 driver instead of pcl driver and see what happens.

Excellent.  Worked like a champ.  That 5L driver is a loser.  I actually used an HP IV
driver and that fixed it.  Thanks.

Commented:
There is one draw back to doing so, you will only get 300dpi out of printer max with this driver.

The same problems occur for a laserjet 6p  with win98
