    Document examiners are frequently asked to determine whether a questioned document is fraudulent or authentic. One approach to proving or disproving fraud is to determine the order of line sequence—which of two intersecting written lines was made last. In this paper, three current techniques available for systematically examining and removing layers of writing medium to determine line sequence are compared: the stereomicroscope method, the distilled water method, and the wax lift method.
