Tandy Home Publisher worked better on the DMP-105/106.  I have samples from 
both the DMP-105/106 family and the DMP-132/132A/133 family.  The 13x 
printers were faster, but sacrificed dot spacing.  OTOH; speed of the 
printer is not the issue here.

I reviewed the documentation for the DMP132.  Its fairly complex, but 
I think I'll need to emulate just one printer or (maybe) printer
family, hopefully there is one that will provide a good amount of
functionality to a good number of applications.
