You should search the mailing list archives more often.  :-)
We went through this same thread 2 weeks ago.

The trhead starts here:


and my final reply is:


So the real question is what are using missing
by using RAW printing over EMF printing?  Are clients
using UNIDRIVER print drivers ?

cheers, jerry
