i'm using Mathematica 4.0 with win98 and printing to a postscript printer. i
have some ListDensityPlots which on screen have lots of gray levels,
but when printed only the white and black 'cells' appear, with the
mid-level gray cells rendered as black. However when i cut and paste
those graphics to ms word ('97) and print from there the gray levels
come out ok, so that rules out a printer driver problem. any clues?

 . . .

how many would like to see/pay for wolfram concentrating on cleaning
up the extensive gui/graphics/eps/font problems rather than
introducing (i'm sure excellent, to be fair) new features in 5.x?  i
know there are cross-platform portability issues, but at some point,
if you have to spend hours or days for each figure that needs to get
into a paper...

not trying to start a flame war, just curious if wolfram marketing can
be swayed to listen to, what seems to me, increasingly many voices. i
think the print version of mathematica journal (new edition) is
beautiful, but it sounds like there are a lot of people tweaking it
because the online version doesn't look as tight.
