Abstract

Printing by a laser scan on an electrostatic photoconductor erases the area that is not to be printed. As a result, once an area has been scanned, images (dark areas) cannot be replaced on the discharged surface. When scan-generating documents vertically from the top down, a super script, encountered on a line after the space above it has been erased, cannot be printed.
