An anonymous reader writes: I'm currently developing a web application for an industry that relies heavily on dot matrix printing. Because of very specific typesetting requirements, PDF documents are produced for printing, though this workaround has presented a problem: very specific settings are required in Adobe Reader (don't check this, do check that, set page scaling to "none", etc.) which doesn't always remember these settings, and users are getting confused and frustrated with all the clicking.
My hunt for alternative solutions (paths I'm considering include browser extensions and applets) has me wondering about printing from other web applications. Web apps have long been replacing green screen and other office apps — but how many in offices that depend on dot matrix printing? Have any other Slashdotters developed or worked in an office that successfully uses a web app for dot matrix printing?
