Ah, the process is called emulation, is it? Cool. There's nothing on
the front panel that does it, the manual doesn't seem to reference it,
and there's no web interface because it's a parallel printer, not a
network printer. The German site appears to sell toner for the printer
(and lots of other printers) and I'm not sure it actually states that
the printer will emulate PCL, but I'll have a look when I get home.
