I would like to reiterate Gail's question about the Epson 800. I've
printed from Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, and Quark without ever
encountering pixelation, therefor, I assume these programs have internal
Postscript drivers. I'd hate to find out at the last minute of a rush
job, that certain file types do not rip properly. Has anyone encountered
a need for the $250 Postscript software that Epson recommends?
