Ken, I am using an 820 with Epson Heavyweight Matt paper and Epson ink. I
have had two photos behind a single pane of glass on the south-facing
service door of my garage for the last two months. I just checked and can
see an almost-imperceptible fading of black when comparing the exposed
surfaces with the covered surfaces. The lighter and colored areas on the
photos appears to be unchanged.

This is not a definitive answer, but I am encouraged. The prints from the
820 are remarkably more stable than those I made earlier on my 800.
