Just a question: Are you leveling things in grayscale mode or RGB? Doing it in grayscale mode makes a world of difference in percieving the outcome of the page, especially since a lot of these pages are yellow as hell (hence why I thought they were old, Vande). The one thing that annoys me about v-tamer is that sometimes you just need one level layer and others you need two or three just to balance things out (all with different settings). Unfortunately even then, you can still see artifacts around lines and such, making it look pretty bad. Although, when the pages are scaled down, most of the artifacts disappear.
