One big difference between dos and Linux is when dos prints out an ascii 
file, it prints out an ascii file.  Linux uses Unicode and maybe a little 
too loosely for this particular printer's tastes.  That would explain 
possibly why dos can print correctly and so far Linux cannot.  Maybe 
there's a filter to copy unicode over to ascii but I don't know for sure.
