Printing pdf,doc, and html with cups

Using Debian Lenny
Using CUPS and lp

I would like to know how to print files from Openoffice such as doc
files, pdf and html. I know I can print from the applications, but
sometimes I want to print using lp or xpp.

I would like to also set the font size on pdf or html pages before I print. I never know what size of print I'm going to get.

Can I chose the font I want to use in text files with Cups?

Thanks for help

I would start with "man lp". There seem to be lots of options, but I see nothing about fonts.

Some printers have built-in fonts, so I would expect it is possible to access them with lp.
