Fenner Masson, J
Examiner of questioned documents, Houston, TX
(Received 26 March 1984; accepted 4 June 1984)
At times the document examiner must compare questioned handwriting to samples of genuine writing which are written with a different kind of writing instrument than the questioned writing. This raises the question of whether or not individual writers change their handwriting habits as a result of the writing instrument used. The writing instrument of particular interest to the author was the broad point felt tip marker. A study of handwriting with various writing instruments revealed the acceptability of comparing ballpoint pen or fiber tip pen writings with questioned felt tip marker writings, with certain limitations.
