The TOPO enhancement was designed for images that had elevation values
that range from about -12420 m to +8910 m.  The range of values was
chosen to break the display brightness range right at 148 (a value of
148 is "water" and 150 is "land" (using 128 image colors so that the
values are grouped by twos)).

This sounds strange to me.  When I display the image, it looks correct
especially if I use the image enhancement (or use EB to roll the enhancement

>What enhancement should I use?..

I would start with the TOPO enhancement and modify it to maximize the
contrast while keeping the breakpoint between water and land "correct"
(correct means that Florida does not disappear or become huge).

>or where did I go astray?

I don't think you went astray anywhere (if you used the MAKEAREA positionals
I sent you earlier).  Does the image look weird if you use the IMAGE
