	Continuing the argument on 'aniso' scaling..

	Well, if you look into the text books on crystallography, the
simple equation for R-factor calculation involves a 'scale factor' (k)
which is 'always' applied to Fcalc.           

like..   R-factor =  Sigma(hkl)(w(|Fobs| - k|Fcalc|)/Sigma(hkl)|Fobs|
                                           |-> scale factor 

Even, if you look into the XTALMACRO of the X-PLOR module..
you will find the following lines..

macro {scalef}

   #f=fcalc;    {name of structure factor array -- scaling will be applied }

   #fref=fobs;  {name of reference structure factor array (f will be scaled to


So, here, Fcalc is scaled to Fobs...

     If I am wrong in pointing out this.... I 'm sorry.
