Coincidentally, I have been researching the conservation problems of
daylight fluorescent pigments, i.e., day-glo.  Chris McGlinchey and
I are investigating the differenced between fading of color and
quenching of fluorescence and the influence of UV on these changes.
Also, will be included means of accurately documenting these changes
via photography. An abstract on this topic has been accepted for
presentation at The Broad Spectrum: The Art and Science of
Conserving Colored Media on Paper, October 5-9, 1999, hosted by the
Art Institute of Chicago.  In the meantime, I would be glad to hear
of other work in this area or to share our findings as we proceed.
