Packing foam

From: Regina Sinclair <sinclairr>

Why is it unsuitable to use regular packing foam to keep books from
moving around inside standard size rare book boxes?  "Archival

    **** Moderator's comments: The properties of some foams have
    been discussed in the DistList over the years, so see the
