Check the licensing agreement on the PostScript printer driver you
choose. The PS driver that ships with Adobe Acrobat is best, because it
is optimized for PDF creation, whereas printer-specific PS drivers might
be more narrowly focused, such as might not support color, might enforce
3/8-in. margins, etc. However, I'd give it a go using any color
PostScript driver you can find, such as an HP 5 Si MX. Note that I
recommend using a real Adobe PostScript driver, and most recent HP
drivers come with HP's version of PostScript, a clonescript if you will.

I want to experiment with printing from Word to a PS file and then
creating a PDF with Acrobat, but I have a non-PS printer, and I can't
figure out which file to download from the HP website. I just find it
incredibly confusing. Can anyone point me to a good plain vanilla PS
file? Thanks.
