 From Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greyscale

'Converting color to grayscale

To convert any color to its most approximate level of gray, first one  
must obtain the values of its red, green and blue (RGB) primaries.

Then, add 30% of the red value, 59% of the green value, and 11% of  
the blue value, together. Regardless of the scale employed (0.0 to  
1.0, 0 to 255, 0% to 100%, etc.), the resultant number is the desired  
gray value, such that a new RGB color would have red, green, and blue  
values equal to the new number. These percentages are chosen due to  
the different relative sensitivity of the normal human eye to each of  
the primary colors (less sensitive to green, more to blue).'

Cheers,

Luis.
