To use a cliche, it never ceases to amaze me that people scan black and white
documents into JPEG files. This is about the worst possible file format for
that type of image.

Were the document to be scanned in monochrome at 300dpi, file size would be
easily manageable and it would look good both when printed out (unlike
greyscale JPEGs) and on screen.

If/when I ever get a scanner, I hope to scan the manuals that I have properly
and make them available. (But I only have Amiga-era service manuals, nothing
