Robert, you misquoted the above... I said it. Sorry; I thought I trimmed the various inclusions correctly. And, what do you think I meant by saying "BUT when you do such a thing, you will find it quite easy to find some facility or function that the 890 driver supports but the 870 does not - e.g. edge-toedge printing or 2880dpi. My point was a bit different (I think) -- even in lower resolutions, the 890 driver may send some commands that the 870 can't handle. The second comment -- that the 870 can't do 2880x720 -- wasn't entirely gratuitous; there are some printers that can do things they aren't advertised as being capable of, such as the C80's capability to print 2880x1440. I've actually tried to print at 2880x720 with the 870, and the results aren't very pretty. -- Robert Krawitz <email@example.com> http://www.tiac.net/users/rlk/ Tall Clubs International -- http://www.tall.org/ or 1-888-IM-TALL-2 Member of the League for Programming Freedom -- mail firstname.lastname@example.org Project lead for Gimp Print/stp -- http://gimp-print.sourceforge.net "Linux doesn't dictate how I work, I dictate how Linux works." --Eric Crampton - Turn off HTML mail features.
