    I'm still running 10.1.5, but I've noticed that when printing from a web
    page (IE, OmniWeb, Opera, whatever), the system generates an enormous
    amount of Postscript output to the printer. Probably something on the order
    of 80MB or more even for simple pages.

    Even the Google homepage, which is about as simple as they come these days,
    takes 2-3 minutes to print on my system (867MHz G4 connected to HP LJ5M
    printer via 100Mb Ethernet).

    Hi,

    You're quite right--thanks for the tip. I tried printing the same map
    page with Explorer, and it printed in a reasonable amount of time.
