Microscopists have done combined space and frequency decompositions optically since long before coining of the word "wavelet" [1], under the name "darkfield imaging" [2] . Now integrative views of lattice information in digital images yield new challenges for mathematical harmonic analysis [3] . Such challenges are illustrated by a series of notes [4-7] on the uses and shortcomings of "weakly convergent" Fourier transform window techniques. Here, we show how robust (if pedestrian) digital
