How can I get a printer driver for my Epson EPL-5200 to run in Windows XP Professional?

According to both Epson and Microsoft, Windows XP has built-in support for the EPL-5200. Epson created custom Windows XP drivers for their more popular printers, although they don't have one for the EPL-5200 at this time. One problem with the native Windows XP printer drivers is that certain functions aren't available: the ink-level check, printing at 2880 DPI (if supported by the printer), certain advanced color management features, and advanced page layout functions such as watermarks.

After doing some additional research, I found that there are Windows XP drivers for the Stylus Pro 5000 series of printers on Epson's site. See this link -- http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/support/supDetail.jsp?BV_UseBVCookie=yes&infoType=Overview&oid=14439&prodoid=11022 for more details.
