I need to take text from a database, turn it into a barcode from the
Web and print to a Zebra Z4M barcode printer. I am stuck at two
separate approaches.

1. Use ZPL II (Zebra's proprietary language to command the printer)
which is executed at a DOS Prompt with "COPY BarCode.txt LPT1" Is
there any way to run that from the web. Also, is there any other
method of sending the information in the text file to the printer?

2. Use some sort of ActiveX object to compile a barcode label image,
then use another ActiveX object to remove the Header/Footer and
Margins from the IE printout. I have found ActiveX objects that can
compile the image, but have not found anything to block out the
Header/Footer and Margins.

Any help and/or samples would be greatly appreciated
