Thanks Helge.

I edited the ppd file, adding to the foomatic rip command line.  I now have:

*FoomaticRIPCommandLine: "gs -dNOPAUSE -dBATCH -sDEVICE=psgray -sOutpu&&
js -sIjsServer=hpijs%A%B%C -dIjsUseOutputFD%Z -sOutputFile=- -"

This seems to work a treat!  All those documents I couldn't print before I now can.  Marvellous!
