Flotsam - thank you for the link. I read through this morning and was greatful for how detailed the process is.
rjr - I can't open that document - I'm denied access. I get the impression that it's not in a language I could read. I appreciate the thought though.
Wolliscroft - I've never done any processing at all. I should probably get a book on B&W processing just so I can understand what everyone else is always talking about.
Bruce - thank you. After reading the link I checked out the FAQ and took some time to look at the processors which filled in a lot of gaps for me.
Stan - thank you for the input. Finally, a practical use for my nit-picking obsessive personality traits.
