John: Thanks for the post. I think I understand where you are coming from. Basically what you are telling us is that you have no intention of testing to see if your paper is compatible with the Generation Inks. That surely is disappointing seeing that there have been numerous people on this list switching to the Generation inks. I was hoping that I could recommend your paper along with others that I am presently handling. Jim Davis mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org John Goerger wrote: > > J.
