I have scanned text at 400 dpi into photoshop
But when I condense to 60px deep image, and save for
Web, white fringing appears unevenly around the letters

With letters on a transparent b/g Layers,Matt, defringe doesn’t help
Any ideas?

How big was the original scanned image? DPI is not a measure of an images size.

No, those are the printed dimensions. How many pixels wide, and how many pixels tall?

The fringing is appearing because the pixels are to big for the writing, try the marquee tool and lasso tool, and trace round the edges of the letters, when you do that cut out the letters and put them in the a new background, or go to fill and fill the bg to black and put the text back down.

*note - Press D then Ctrl backspace to make the BG black.

I don't think it's fringing. It's anti-aliasing the text beyond recognition. When you resize the canvas just use the lowest level of anti-aliasing and it should turn out a bit better.

If the "fringing" is occuring when you are Saving for Web and making it a transparent GIF, you need to set the Matte to the color of the background of the webpage.  It will still appear "fringey" when you look at it in Photoshop, but if you then stick it on your webpage that has the same background color as your GIF, the fringiness should go away.

If it doesn't, post what happened.

This works best on a solid-colored background.

Your letters may still look a little weird because they've been reduced so far.  If I'm reading you right, and that the final image is 60 pixels in the dimension in which it was originally 400?  (Not sure what you mean by "60px deep".)
