I didn't use a histogram, I just fished around in the difference with the
cursor. It wouldn't surprise me to see the occasional much larger value
right on a contrasty edge. But at 10:1, even magnifying the image, I still
haven't been able to see any degradation. Maybe I don't know what to look
for in JPEG2000--I certainly know what to look for in regular JPEG.
