What Photoshop fill for 18% grey card?

The bottom line......

is that I would like to meet the person that can print with an inkjet printer a “true” 18% gray compared to a commercial gray card (ColorChecker).  Just produce a color in PS using any one of the suggested numbers, print it with many different printers and you will have many different looking shades of gray prints.  Matte papers versus luster, satin, gloss are also going to look different.

Later today I will spot read my Xrite ColorCheckers 18% patch using my I1Pro’s just to see what Lab and RGB values are indicated.
