[Ifeffit] Basic issues in EXAFS curve-fitting

I am dealing with a Zn-protein and have data to fit...

Dealing with the old question of background correction, I have 
several DIFFERENT recipes from SK and others. Especially the 
alignment of theory and experiment. Is there anyone willing to give 
me a definitive protocol? In particular, SK writes that one should 
"read the data into Artemis": now, Artemis does not read the crude 
data and I have to go through Athena, as far as I understand. But 
when I read the athena.prj into Artemis, will the imported data be 
corrected already using the default values for the spline as provided 
in Athena? If so, there is already an initial bias, I think.

Help is welcome
