Here's a trick for removing sharpie marks from _some_ surfaces (works
_great_ on CD-Rs)... draw over the sharpie with a dry-erase marker,
then wipe off the dry erase marker with a soft cloth (not your
finger). the alcohol in the dry-erase marker is a good solvent for
sharpies, and unless the surface is soluable in alcohol, no damage
will be left behind. This trick is not suitable for heavily textured
surfaces because the dry erase marker will get stuck in the texture
and not come up.
I would not use WD-40 to try to remove sharpie ink... I don't think
it's petroleum soluable anyway.
