Still not sure why one .ps file generated by Konqueror causes this problem, 
while another doesn't.  Going to install Mozilla on stable to see if problem 
is on both browsers.

No, I print a file from a straight HTML page, and compare the .ps from that an 
a PHP page, but can't see where a difference might be, but sending the .ps 
that I passed on to you, won't print to CUPS, with CUPS saying no pages 
found, even though the progress meter shows 2 pages being sent to CUPS

Does it print for you to CUPS?

Dont' agree with this, as other konqueror generated pages do print correctly.

Still no response to how to define the level of .ps
