In my experience, magicfilter does an excellent job of coping with odd 
file formats.  You're going to need Postscript support for OpenOffice 
and Mozilla; gs is probably the cheapest way to go.

But after you look at the price tag, check the price tag for ink 
cartridges -- that's where the real expense is.
