We've learned that when Win3.1x users try to print color documents from WordPerfect 6.0a and 6.1 to HP Color LaserJet 5MPS printers, the documents will only print in black and white. And when you set the driver to print in color-instead of relying on its automatic color detection-the printouts are green. Even printer drivers downloaded for WordPerfect from Corel don't work. As a temporary solution, try using the HP DeskJet 1200C driver with Print Manager enabled.
