Are LaserJet series "Backward Compatible"?

Can a higher model of these printer act exatly like a lower model; or is it possible to copy a "print to file" of a lower model to an upper model?

All HP LaserJet printers (except the HP LaserJet 3100) are backward compatible. This means that they can operate using versions of PCL (Printer Command Language) for models that came before them. For example, the HP LaserJet 6L printer can understand PCL for all previous models of HP LaserJet printers up to the 6L (HP LaserJet, HP LaserJet II Family, HP LaserJet III Family, HP LaserJet 4 Family etc). When selecting an alternative driver in Windows, if the printer desired is not listed, choose the most current option available.
