I'm with you on gray scale. I have yet to find a book that yielded consistently 
better results using it or 400 dpi than I can get with a tweeked brightness 
setting and 300 dpi. I admit that small fonts should do better with 
400 dpi, but I guess none of the books I've come across has a sufficiently 
small font to make using that higher resolution necessary. I've got this one 
horrible book printed in the Soviet Union that must have God awful 
print. Can't check it because my optacon died. I had hoped gray scale would do 
the trick for it, as its a classic, and I very much want to read it. But no 
joy. GS is as bad or worse than the various permutations of 
brightness and other things that I've tried. I know other people get great 
results with GS and the higher res. But for me, it just hasn't proven necessary 
or helpful as yet.
