a2ps is an excellent tool that most of the time does what I want.

However, here's a problem: I want to print some XML using the html stylesheet.

$ a2ps -B -1 --borders=no --delegate=NO --pretty-print=html -o po.xml.ps po.xml
[po.html (HTML): 57 pages on 57 sheets]
[Total: 57 pages on 57 sheets] saved into the file `po.xml.ps'
[97 lines wrapped]

57 sheets ?! Postscript source code?!!

The problem is, po.xml is a really small file, 15 lines or so, and in fact a2ps produces now "PostScript inside PostScript"

What I get from the html style file is that I have to turn delegations off, but somehow this doesn't seem to be the whole story...
