Thanks Bill -- very interesting and for whatever reason more info on the
topic than on the long-ago Epson list, or anyway new info. Now, however,
since you know so much -- why is this suddenly such an issue? Are inkjet
inks more metamerism-prone than other colors ? In printmaking, color
photography, painting & drawing, etc., you knew colors looked different in
different lights, but it didn't seem to be such an issue. Is metamerism
worse, or more uneven, in inkjet?
