i posted this before but got no replies that solved it so here goes

have some grayscale ListDensityPlot's which render normally in the
front end (Mathematica 4.0) but when printing out (under win98 to an nec
superscript 1400 laser printer) the mid-range gray levels get mapped
to white so that only the black cells print as black. the rest is
white. the frame and ticks are still there....however, if i cut-paste
(as metafile) to word97, and print from there they print normally -
i.e with gray cells where they're supposed to be). i'd say that rules
out a printer driver problem. otherwise what is word doing,
circumventing it? no, more likely there's a bug in Mathematica's postscript

i got a reply to change the GraphicsPrintingFormat global option value
to DownloadPostScript. in doing so, when i print i get a popup with 4
options: automatic, download postscript directly to printer, interpret
postscript, and render postscript and print bitmap. however none of
these solve my problems. in fact two of these (the 2nd and 3rd) print
blank pages except for the notebook name at the top. any clue?
