I believe "Colorant" is the term used in the MIB.

Glen,

 

Don't know if this will be helpful, but for printer-state-reasons the
generic term we use is "marker supply" for any consumable other than toner.
Not particularly user-friendly.

 

For CUPS we translate marker-supply-low/empty to ink and toner-low/empty to
toner. That leaves out wax-based printers, of course...

All,

 

I was doing a write up related to a generic type printer (laser or inkjet)
but I did not know what the accepted term is the encompasses both toner and
ink.  Can someone provide me the accept term?
