NT 4 provides 3 separator page templates (*.sep) in the system32 directory that can be edited with a standard text editor like Notepad.

I know where the *.sep files are. I was looking for a definition of the codes in the file.

I think this is what you are looking for:

Begin a new document in Notepad.  On the first line, type an escape character and then press Enter.  I use "$".

The following are the variables and what they do:

$B$S - Prints text in single-wide block chars until $U is encountered

$D - Prints the date the job was printed

$E - Ejects a page from the printer

$F{pathname} - Prints the contents of the file specified by path

$I - Prints the job number

$Lxxxx - Prints all the characters (xxxx) following it until another esc code is encountered

$N - Prints the user name of the person that submitted the job

$n - skips n number of lines (0-9).  0 moves printing to the next line

$T - Prints the time the job was printed

$U - turns off block character printing

$Wnn - Sets the width of the sep page.  Default is 80, max is 256.  Chars over the max are truncated

ex:

$
$N
$D
$0
$L TEST SEPARATOR
$T
$E

result:

 TEST SEPARATOR 20:55
