I am trying to print a .XMl document in mozilla. Any help would be great.

could you tell us your type of printer ?
what driver, are you using ghostscript, etc .... ?
does it even support PCL ?
we need more info otherwise what you typed means nothing ...
judging by the error i assume it is a HP laserjet, but i can't go assuming things
if so, try the newest version of gimp-print, and since you didn't say
what you were using, then you may have already tried this ...
