[UPDATE 3]: "Expert" takes back forgery claim, others agree "no evidence of forgery"
Independent document examiner Sandra Ramsey Lines said the memos looked like they had been produced on a computer using Microsoft Word software. Lines, a document expert and fellow of the American Academy of Forensic Sciences, pointed to a superscript — a smaller, raised "th" in "111th Fighter Interceptor Squadron" — as evidence indicating forgery.
Microsoft Word automatically inserts superscripts in the same style as the two on the memos obtained by CBS, she said.
"I'm virtually certain these were computer generated," Lines said after reviewing copies of the documents at her office in Paradise Valley, Ariz. She produced a nearly identical document using her computer's Microsoft Word software.
This whole excercise is a joke!
Forget all this stuff below.
Just answer this:
WHERE are the White House Documents that DISPROVE all these allegations?
WHERE are the WH Documents that PROVE Bush fulfilled his service?
Below is superscripting of "th" in Times New Roman and Times, with both automatic superscripting and manual superscripting.
Compare with the document from CBS news:
Not to mention the narrow top loop of the "8" in the CBS doc and the slightly lowered bottom of the "7."
Why are we even talking about this? Who are these "experts"????
[UPDATE] I take back the "th" thing. When you print it out, the "th" is similarly raised... I did it on a laser printer.
Not, however true for the "7" and "8", in MS Times NR font, when printed the 8-top loop is wide, and the 7 stem does not dip below the baseline and has a hook (near the "8") which the CBS doc does not have.
This is crazy, what a waste of time!
