You have to try the screen size as a whole replacement, as the grey becomes a 'percieved' white, when the full screen is employed. This is unaviodable. The grey is there to 'rescale' the contrast range and percieved black level. So, it works, but only as a whole screen replacement. Then the trick works.
If you 'see' a real, true white beside it, you will 'percieve' the correctness of the white. If you supplant the entire' perceptive' situation with the grey, then you see it as the 'white' instead. Get it? It works quite nicely for Digital projectors, when attepmting to get them to give you a real, true black level, that does not seem grey-like (instead of percieved black) on darker scenes, in real room situations.
