21-step platemaker's grayscale, made by Stouffer, which is a
transmission scale. There are other brands, but most maufacturer's
specs refer specifically to a 21-step scale, with target around step
16 (varies with mfr).
A 12-step scale (at least from Stouffer) is a camera (reflection)
scale and not useful for this purpose.
