Very much depends on what flavour Unix/Linux you are using and how the printer queue has been set up.

HP LJ is very graphical printer, UNIX systems are capable of generating vector graphics documents that make your printer happy.
(if not natively, then with a little help from GhostScript package)

Usually you feed nroff formated document into ghostscript, or another print preprocessor, which does all what pin printer did with charset change commands etc.
nroff is mentiones, because it is very simple, just like old epson language, where you start underscore, stop it etc...
