Marguerite (and all),

Well, yes, it's Monday morning, and I've sort of solved the problem. Would you believe I solved it by READING THE README FILE?!?!?!?!? (And whatever happened to the interrobang, anyway?)

Turns out that the driver HP furnishes doesn't work. The readme file instructs you to go to the Adobe site and download the latest Adobe PS driver and install that, instead.

There are still some font anomalies I've chasing down, but I was able to work around them, after a fashion, and get some production done over the weekend.

The machine is choking on symbol fonts (sometimes, not always) and throwing PostScript errors; but at least I'm no longer tearing out what little remains of my hair.

Thanks, everyone, for your well-meaning suggestions. Some of them sent me looking in the right direction.
