Text Printing To Dot Matrix Using Escape Codes

Howdy,

    I need to print text to an Epson dot matrix printer using embedded Epson
escape codes for limited formatting.  Using a PrintText file and AssignPrn
does not work as Widows intercepts the embedded codes and prints them not
allowing the printer to act on them.

    Any Ideas??

    Please reply by email to kye...@datawest.bc.ca since I only have limited
access to this newsgroup.

    Thanks in advance.
