        well, damage is probably done.  how can i check the resolution?
        i tried to increase it by creating huge ppm and tif files, but
        then that's really absurd since there can only be just so much
        data per image.  i _could_ try xv and jpeg and smoothing image to
        refine, but too much hassle.  

        (i used gocr -m 130 and "saw" the glyphs it (presumably) saw.
        seemed pretty much okay to my eyes.  but then i'm not a computer
        program.  [MAYBE :)]
