I have a 16-bit raster (MrSID) that I want to display in Geoserver 2.0.2 but it is displaying as all black. If I create a new style similar to the default raster.sld but with graychannel element the image displays correctly. My question: Is there a way to modify the default raster.sld so that it handles BOTH RGB and grayscale images (8 and 16-bit)? Thanks
