DESCRIPTION
     This is a standard ("Preferences") Amiga printer driver for Stylus
     Color inkjet printer from Epson. It features resolutions up to
     720x720 dpi, with optional MicroWeave printing (an Epson feature
     that uses overlapping passes to reduce banding). Resolutions are
     selected by the Preferences density setting:

        Density 1       180x180
        Density 2       360x180
        Denisty 3       360x360
        Denisty 4       360x360, MicroWeave
        Denisty 5       720x720
        Density 6       720x720, MicroWeave
        Density 7       720x720, MicroWeave (identical to Denisty 6)

     The driver implements horizontal and verical whitespace stripping,
     as well as Epson compression mode 2 ("TIFF v4.0 packbits mode") to
     minimize the amount of data that must be sent to the printer and
     improve printing speed. A beta tester reported speed on an Amiga
     3000 comperable to that of a 66MHz 486 with Epson's MS-Windows
     driver.

     The driver implements a very simple color correction for 720dpi
     modes to prevent them from printing excessively dark.  This gives
     results similar to other drivers on the same printer (for example,
     the PageStream 2.x LQ2550C driver).  We are investigating a future
     update with improved color correction, which will provide more
     accurate colors and better gradation.

OTHER
     The driver takes advantage of Stylus Color features not present
     on older ESC-P2 printers, such as compression mode 2 (packbits).
     Because of this it will not work on previous Stylus printer models.
