Right Geoff! this is the only _practical_ use of a reference card 
for both telecine transfer and answer print. 
There is a lab (LTC/Paris) which gives the DPs their Printer Light 
equivalents directly out of the telecine session.
For this purpose the keylink GreyFinder maths had to be altered 
to respect LTC's recommendations, and no longer the TEC ones...

Next time in Paris take an hour or two to meet Didier de Keyser,
LTC labs tech manager, we will all be happy to read your comments
on his method.
