Figure a lot of you use the LP2844 or similar Zebra thermal label printer.
I've been using it for years with desktop shipping applications, like Endicia/Dazzle, and UPS WorldShip.
I'm trying to send Zebra's programming language commands (ZPL II) directly to the printer.
I'd have these generated from a browser, say Firefox, and then use a Firefox add-on like JSPrint to send them automatically to a window printer without having to click the print button.
I read somewhere that you can setup a generic text printer driver and send it text commands. But I'm not sure if it would work through text on a browser page.
Anyone have experience doing this?
(Trying to move away from the desktop shipping applications, and get the labels generated through Endicia's Label Server API, as well as UPS's Label API.)
