Gosh--why not?? I just did. Wife walks in and asks what I doing. "I'm
microwaving the Epson test page". "Of course you are, dear--good-night..."

Having done so, I can report that the results proved without question that
the Windows logo as printed by my Epson will last at least 200 years (if the
Huntington conservator can be trusted).
