Similar printers will give consistent output but there is plenty of room
for surprises. Paul already listed some of them. Add "printer drivers" to
the list.

I've passed a Word 6.0 file to another person for printout with disastrous
results. He had the same version of the software, all the correct fonts,
his printer recognized the same margin limitations, they were both laser
printers of the same generation (but different manufactures) -- and his
output had completely botched line lengths and page lengths.

Any boss who "explodes" and claims that you don't know what you're talking
about actually doesn't know what he/she is talking about.
