Well don't I feel a bit silly...  I tried Ira's setting for color images
and it eliminated the need for the post production process I described in
earlier emails!!  Neil - did I hear you correctly that a 300ppi 24bit
image would be reasonable for OCR?  If so this would eliminate scanning
each page twice...

Thanks for everyone's input so far - it has been incredibly valuable!
