When I use the PCL6 driver from HP, the LJ4000 Built-In Fonts don't show in WordPerfect 7, or any apps. If I use theolder PCL5 driver they do. Why won't the new driver allow the use of faster built in fonts?

PCL6 will look for resident fonts if they are there but only at the time of printing. The LJ4000 expects bi-directional communication.

When I use the PCL6 driver from HP, the LJ4000 Built-In Fonts don't show in WordPerfect 8, or any apps. If I use theolder PCL5 driver they do. Why won't the new driver allow the use of faster built in fonts? So how can you get to select the native PRINTER RESIDENT FONTS if only Teue Type fonts show in apps?

With PCL 5 it important to know what fonts are available on the printer as if the font is not resident the printer will simply substitute the font for one it has, typically courier. With PCL 6 the language uses a technology called Font Synthesis so that it matters not if the font is resident on the machine as the language will create the image of the font on the fly. If the font is resident then it will use the resident font.

Thanks James. So is it better to use the PCL 5 driver so I can choose the built in fonts? 600 dpi is plenty good for the text I print. I'm using WordPerfect 8 running under
WIN 98 with 128MB RAM.

Unless new technology offers you more why move to it?

James you wrote <<Unless new technology offers you more why move to it?>>
  This is excellent advice, and I agree with it. However, if all PC users took this good advice, INTEL and MICROSOFT would go out of business in short order! Their business thrives on making obsolete software and hardware every 6mo to 1 year so they can make FAT profits.
  Gates is not the richest person in the world because he puts out good software. If a car performed like WIN98, it would be driven off the market in a week!
  He is a vicious marketer, who has a true monopoly!
