Wilhelm's bombshell - understanding the latest test results

I find this difficult to believe. Even if the papers are made from the same
base and have the same coating, the surface texture _must_ affect how the
ink is absorbed and hence the light-fastness of the resulting print. I am
not willing to extend Henry's remarks for him or accept extensions of his
remarks from vendors. If he says it was for Lysonic Standard, then it does
*not* necessarily apply to Lysonic Soft or Lysonic Rough unless he
specifically states that it does. Family resemblence or no.
