Yes, das ist klaar (clear?)!

I have some study to do. Especially since I want to create my own
characterisation target.

I will be scanning inkjet or possibly color laser media with my students to
demonstrate the process of calibrating a desktop scanner or, for that
matter, a digital kamera. So, very important to discuss the issues of
metamerie in the context of scanner profile and media type. Thank you so
much for replying. 

I may (should?) come back mit vielen frage...
