Hello Graham.  I sure liked hearing about your fossil teeth on a scanner.
I have seen some beetles scanned that way that I thought I could work on
(but don't know and won't get a chance).

PhotoShop certainly doesn't need a Postscript driver, it's not Postscript.
But I am amazed you can print from Illustrator without a Postscript driver.
Do you work on a Mac??

I have an Apple inkjet, the 2500, and Stylescript makes it print beautiful
Illustrator files.  But to my suprise I am finding that it prints an eps
file in a Quark doc. pixellated.  I think there's a caveat in the
Stylescript Release notes about Quark...  I'd love to solve that problem
though, if anyone has a solution.
