Laser printed texts

From: William Henderson <willt>
Date: Monday, January 22, 1996
An individual not on the list has recently experienced a laser
printed book manuscript having fused together and become unusable
while in the hands of a small publisher.  The manuscript was stored
for approximately two months in a fire file which also housed
photographs. Is there knowledge of similar experiences?

It is suspected that the environment in the fire file is quite
active as the individual making the manuscript has not had similar
experience with documents printed in the same fashion which were
retained in his residence/work place.
