Nobody could/would deny my assertion about NewsPrint only printing in
monochrome on a paintjet. I had some kind offers for software to do
the rasterisation and drivers for the paintjet for NewsPrint. Others
suggested I use GhostScript to perform the task, this is the path I
chose and I am happy with the results, I can now spool a colour
postscript file to the paintjet printer and get a reasonable print
