Illustrator 8 can antialias art on screen. I have found that it can also do a creditable job of output to a non-Postscript (ie: Quickdraw on the Mac) printer. My theory is that since it does a decent job to the screen, which in effect is a special case Quickdraw device, it handles printer output much the same. ATM should keep type pretty clean, if you have it installed, as it has for a long time. There are artifacts which rear their ugly heads, of course, when you are trying to output Illustrator art to a Quickdraw printer. Masking doesn't always work well and the output is often kinda, well, fuzzy. Colour management doesn't seem to work. For working professionals a RIP is essential, but Illustrator 8 is surprisingly capable in a Quickdraw environment. John John Lasruk Toronto Canada - Please turn off HTML mail features.
