Depends on how you configure your printer, really. Here's a
trick I'm using to get perfectly portable files:
1. install the QMS 810 driver (a good ole PostScript level 1 printer)
2. rename it as "Plain PostScript" or something, and route it
to the FILE device.
The files you get will print on virtually everything, especially
if you avoid non-standard fonts.

PS. To please users without access to either Word or Frame, is there
some way to go from RTF -> PostScript out there? Perhaps via groff?
