One of those best qualified to do this sort of test is Jon Cone, though I'm sure a few others have the wherewithal (C.D. and Dan C. come to mind.) Jon has spoken out about the 1200's characteristics in this regard, and has explicitly suggested the "backlit film" setting as the one to minimize ink output on that printer. In fact, the best answer to your question, at the moment, would be to download and unzip all of Jon's free profiles, and look at the printer settings that he chose to use with those profiles. rafe b. - Turn off HTML mail features.
