    Yes. I suggest 320TXP so you can follow Epson's instructions, i.e. simply place it "shiny" side down on the glass, and not worry about Newton's rings.

    I think he means Kodak Tri-X, ISO 320.

    Because both the emulsion side and the back side are slightly matte with Tri-X. With other films the back (non-emulsion) side is shiny so the risk of Newton's Rings is much greater.

    Yup.

    For most people, it's a certainty, not a risk. Or, if one wishes to be really obnoxiously pedantic, a risk with likelihood = unity.

    Maybe it would have been better to say that the risk of NOT having NR issues is approximately 0.

    If you're scanning, put the neg emulsion down. Then simply flip it in PS.
