Ghostscript 5.01 support for LaserJet 6L family?

Does ghostscript 5.01 support LaserJet 6L printers?
I see from their product specification, that the LaserJet 6L
family uses "Enhanced HP PCL 5".

I don't know about Ghostscript 5.01, but the Ghostscript 4.03 ljet4
driver works fine with the LaserJet 6L.  Sometimes I see fuzzy
characters when printing complex pages, but I hope that adding
additional memory to the printer will fix that problem.

1. ghostscript for HP LaserJet 6L ???

Hello,

     Has anyone gotten a LaserJet 6L to work with ghostscript?  Which
version of ghostscript, and what driver?  I'm using gs5.10 (Aladdin, not
GNU ghostscript).  I've tried the pxlmono and lj5gray devices.

     I'm using ghostscript in conjuntion with apsfilter.  I've only been
able to get "raw" output (duh).  Anything else (i.e., postscript files)
turn out as gobbledygook.

     I've tried this:

          gs -sDEVICE{pxlmono, lj5gray} -sOutputFile=test
some_postscript_file.ps

          cat test >> /dev/lp1

with junk resulting at the printer.  Are either of these commands
syntactically wrong?

     Is the LaserJet 6L backwards-compatible with any other LaserJet?
(I've been able to print to a LaserJet 4L in the past).

     Any information would be welcome.  I just escaped the HP Technical
Support phone maze empty-handed.
