+- Monochrome output is the default, color needs to be enabled in config. PCL5c color extensions
will only be implemented on demand. By default color and grayscale images are converted to
monochrome bitmaps (1-bit). Dithering only occurs if the JAI image library is available.
 
 - Images are scaled up to the next resolution level supported by PCL (75, 100, 150, 200,
300, 600 dpi). For color and grayscale images an even higher PCL resolution is selected to
give the dithering algorithm a chance to improve the bitmap quality.

 The default value for the "rendering" setting is "speed" which causes borders to be painted
as plain rectangles. In this mode, no special borders (dotted, dashed etc.) are available.

 The default value for the "disable-pjl" setting is "false". This means that the PCL renderer
usually generates PJL commands before and after the document in order to switch a printer
into PCL language. PJL commands can be disabled if you set this value to "true".
 
+The default value for "image" mode is monochrome output, use "mode" equals "color" to enable
color output.

 You can control the output resolution for the PCL using the "target resolution" setting on
the FOUserAgent. The actual value will be rounded up to the next supported PCL resolution.
Currently, only 300 and 600 dpi are supported which should be enough for most use cases. Note
that this setting directly affects the size of the output file and the print quality.
