RE: filmscanners: Repro house skirmishing (long)

It's my impression that the primary source of the 'orange shift' was fading 
of the Light Cyan ink, that would obviate the problem on a 4-color printer. 
I'm not sure whether the dark cyan ink had a problem. If so, it was 
apparently much less marked.
PS I haven't used it with my 860, as I'm very happy with EPP
