Graeme, do you think it may make sense, if targen had an option to generate only device values which are integral multiples of 100/(2^N-1)? (where e.g. N=8, for characterizing 8-bit devices)
Possibly, although I'm unconvinced that the 8 bit quantization error is that significant in the overall scheme of things. It's hard to know how the printing system ends up quantizing everything anyway - there could be lookup tables followed by the quantizing levels that screening then applies, quantization in RGB->CMYY conversion etc. In general it's better to feed the printing system Postscript if it can cope with it, although I'd like to get printtarg to spit out raster files at some stage (hence the render sub project in Argyll).
