Actually, KT...a properly done bitmap of type, for example, output next to an eps of that type and next to type from type, when off the press, would usually be hard to distinguish one from the other without magnification. Or at least with eyes far better than mine, now or 30 years ago<G>

Realize that even type is going to be rasterized at imagesetter/platesetter resolution (2400?) and the 1200 scan rendered at 2400 and then both will affected by ink doing what it does on paper (smearing a little, absorbing a little, gaining a little weight, etc.). Of course the type of stock and the presswork will affect this. But in general most people would see no difference. Note I did say "properly done"--not just scanned directly into InDesign and run with it.<G>

$0.02 (gadzooks, it has been a long time since I'd used that!)
