Lightbulb Thermal Serial printer(epson),(ttyS0),firefox,html "part" print

Hi folks,

Ubuntu 8.0.4,GnomeDesktop with firefox (we are going to use)
Epson Thermal printer(M-T500 Thermal Printer)
without linux driver,provide serial port ctrl.
I get the command manual(pfd).I can test the command by run minicom however.

I want to print the Web page (.html) provide by our web servers.Those pages have a js-button(javascript) each with the function that the firefox/or (custom) app demo is called to print the line/table/div/etc (not the whole page,like the receipt) after the js-button is pressed.

There is a window showing the print-progress info will be better when it is printting.

I just try to find the best way to do this:
I got ghostscript after search by google but it is just used for pfd print or something.

So How can I just implment this?

I also want to know if anyone knows about this driver for this device or even know which type of module is suitable.
