This sample demonstrates two methods of printing gray text. On PostScript printers it sends PostScript, on QuickDraw printers it sends Color QuickDraw calls. If a QuickDraw printer does not use a CGrafPort, the gray text comes out as black. Unfortunately, there's currently no good way to handle that situation.
