    Through developing a printer driver I have stumbled on this question, there
    are 2 types of surfaces Engine-managed, device-manged (standard and non
    standard format).

    In your opinion (and in the context of a printer driver) what is the best to
    use and why? What are the differences between them and how are they
    implemented? And above all is there any information or examples of each type
    :) (I know that MSPLOT in the DDK implements a Device-managed non standard
    surface)

    Thanks in advance
