Then it looks like no one has a good answer for you except, as noted,
you have just a small selection of fonts builtin to your printer that
you can use. I would suggest you consult your user manual (or Google
<GASP!>) for ideas, as no one else seems to have a clue. Your printer
may work in Windows with some sort of installed driver, and you would
need the same for your Linux install then. 

There is the old HOW-TO on Linux printing to read, or google on that.
Maybe you can get it to cough something out from command line. If that
doesn't work, you'll need to invest even more google time for an answer.
Sorry, I'm not sure my old serial 300 baud Teletype would work with
Linux anymore. :( Ric
