In contrast to prior experimental work, our results support the conclusion that RXYC can perform well after marginal noise removal. However, marginal noise removal on page images like those found in UW3 remains a hard problem, and it therefore remains an open question whether RXYC can actually achieve competitive performance on such databases.
