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.
