Format Explained
--------------------

Microtext does not refer to any one type of material. Microtext refers to the way that material has been preserved -- it's current format. The original material could be a government document, a book, a journal artical, a newspaper, a photograph or something else. That item is photographed onto film, either in a roll or a flat card.

>> Microtext formats include:

    * MFE = Microfiche -- flat sheets of film about 4" x 6"
    * MFM = Microfilm -- reels of film in 35 mm width
    * MPT = Microprint (opaques) -- stiff 3" x 5" cards with black text on a white background
    * MCD = Microcard (opaques) -- stiff cards with black text on a white background, usually 6" x   9"

>> Location and Equipment
The area boasts 14 new Canon digital reader-printers. Some of these new reader-printers have control pads (as pictured at left) that allow the user to manipulate the film without having to reach for the controls on the machine. If a staff member performs the initial loading of the film, the control pad makes it much easier for those with mobility difficulties to do their own research.

i know these sites, but non answered my questions, even i sent them mails and waiting answers.

I noticed there are many kind of invisible printing, like UV printing, where we should use UV light to see data, but what am lookinf for is invisible printing that can be viewed by special lens.

Microtext, in relation to security printing, is basically a very tiny font. To the naked eye, it looks like a black line, but can be read using a strong magnifying glass.

For proper security, it needs specialist knowledge, specialist equipment, specialist inks, specialist paper, etc.etc. Otherwise it would be easy to forge!
