I guess this doesn't work because I guess OOo will always produce
PostScript for printing (for the usual inkjet and laser printers)
and not plain text (for dot matrix printers).

If I want to print plain text in the standard font used by the printer,
I would simply create the labels as a plain text file using a plain text
editor and not a "monster" like OOo.
