   If you're talking about *any* kind of proofing on the monitor, you have
to have the monitor calibrated FOR THAT PURPOSE. My monitor was
calibrated for something or other, but I find that printing with the 1160
on paper X is a whole other thing (and of course each other paper is too).
I don't know if it would be worthwhile to calibrate for these conditions,
probably not -- but I know that what's seen on the monitor is only --
what's seen on the monitor.
