A useful summary, Mike. But seeing as we all have a printer connected to our PCs, unless we are proofing for press work, it just seems far easier to me to make a little workprint (say 5x4 ins / A6) to check the final output. This uses very little ink or paper, but tells you all you need to know.

I don't!  (have a printer that is) =)

I have to rely purely on soft proofing. Thanks for the link!

Dear, oh dear.

Roger, the fun you are missing out on. ICC profiles, head clogs, extortionate ink costs, paper misfeeds, head strikes . . .  I mean, what else would you do in the evenings?

Hahaha, well I do like to read posts from LL on my evening... =)
On the flip side I don;t actually have a decent professional printing shop in town. Everyone or does posters or offset. It's quite frustrating...
