Hi, Larry,

I just tried it.  The imported EPS is indeed grey,
but I think the bounding box is oversized as the
outline is much bigger than the line art content.
It's hard to resize the graphic import when the
bounding box is much bigger than the content,
and the content is invisible.  I printed it out
anyway, and the output showed white blank where
the gray box was.  Thanks anyway for your suggestion.
