HP Color LaserJet 5 and 5M Printers
HP Color LaserJet 5 and 5M printers use new HP Image Resolution
Enhancement technology 1200 (HP Image REt 1200) to project
outstanding text, graphics, and more vibrant colors than before.
The HP Color LaserJet 5M printer is network-ready with genuine
Adobe PostScript Level 2 software, 36 Mbytes of memory, and an HP
JetDirect card. The HP Color LaserJet 5 printer is upgradable so you
can tailor it to suit the needs of your particular environment.
HP Color LaserJet 5 and 5M printers can use glossy paper or
transparency film for special output.
Modifications to the PCL language for HP Color LaserJet 5 and 5M
printers are summarized in the table below and are described in detail
in the PCL 5 Color Technical Reference Manual (P/N 5961-0940):

Render Algorithm Command
The Render Algorithm command selects the algorithm to be used for
rendering page marking entities on a given page.
HP Color LaserJet 5 and 5M printers remap non-continuous tone
render algorithms (3 - 14) into continuous tone smooth (15) and
monochrome continuous tone smooth (17) algorithms.
