Jim, I've seen this with the epson oem inks too, on uncoated paper. The black ink only is not as black as the cmy mixed with black. At 95 the epson driver might be kicking in some cmy to go with the black, or just mixing cmy dots near black dots and the result is that almost black comes out darker than black ink. You can really see this when you make a custom profile and preview it in photoshop. > Date: Thu, 20 Jan 2000 21:39:48 -0500 > From: "J.
