 Printer control codes in reports?

Suppose one has canned reports from an application--that is, the user
will not control aspects of the printer's behavior.

1. How can printer control codes (e.g., select font) be placed in the
report?  I'm assuming one can embed the escape sequences at the head
of the report...

2. To be more flexible, it would be nice to allow the user to select
the printer.  Using that system--and assuming the user may select from
several *types* of printers--one would need to have the PAL application
send the appropriate codes to the selected printer.  What would be the
best way to achieve that?
