Sorry for being so thick on the print dialog. I guess I just haven't cared
enough to check all the options in the Jaguar version of the driver for my
printer. I see now how to do some of that--like the pdf and b/w. However,
it may be that it is OS 10.3.2 which is the root of the problem, because I
downloaded a classic copy of Rev (also 2.1.2) and it printed without
crashing. Odd. Now I'm curious if a windows build under OS9 will give me
Courier fonts on printing. Will test it Friday or Saturday.
