I've recently seen cleaning cartridges for these printers..I can't remember
where, but I suspect they are finally getting around to addressing this
problem. It took years to introduce more permanent ink sets, I suspect this
will be another area of consumer response. I'm not holding my breath,
though. They do have to make money, don't they?
