Topic: Questions about DDE FilePrintSilent

I have two questions about this API that I would be most appreciative of any help with:
First, it is possible to specify which printer to use with these commands? I can't find anything about passing in a parameter. If it is not possible to specify a printer for an individual command, then an I correct in assuming that the printer to be used is the last printer selected by a Print Setup command?
Second, the FilePrintSilent and FilePrintSilentEx (and many other) DDE APIs specify that support is limited to Postscript level 1 operators and ASCII data (I assume this means form data!??), I betray my complete lack of Postscript and PDF knowledge here by asking what the practical effects of this limitation are. Does this mean:
a. If a pdf contains certain level 2 or later elements they will not print
b. The document will not print at all if using a level 2 or greater print driver.
c. both a and b
Is the level 1 limitation a potential quagmire for software that will be distributed across a heterogeneous set of environments to print government forms?
