Re: old JASA's

I was almost suggesting my library to donate the old JASA hard copies,
but now I don't. I've found, to my disappointment, that the
reproduction in the new CD-ROM's is of a significantly worse quality
than that in the old ones, much less the published (printed) volumes.
Though I can read them on screen without a problem, the print out is so
fuzzy that I cannot read text without guessing. Some graphs also suffer
even on screen. Making the print preference of DjVu to the darkest does
not help. It may be because I use a Mac version of DjVu plug-in (3.0
beta 7, which is the latest. The one that came with the CD-ROM does not
install -- freezes Mac OS 9.0.4) with Netscape 4.75 (U.S. version) and
postscript printers.
        I had hoped I could print out articles from the CD-ROMs in order
to carry  to read (I do not usually carry a lap top). I still have to
go to the library and photocopy them for that purpose. I would like to
hear other people's experience.
