Around here, rubbing alcohol is 30% water,
I'd not waste my time trying that on removing
sharpie. I would try denatured alcohol.
I did buy another box of black markers. I'll
try some various solvents on the old pens, see
if anything works.

Rubbing alcohol (sometimes ethyl alcohol, sometimes isopropyl alcohol,
plus other chemicals to "denature" it) works to remove "Sharpie" marks,
but to renovate a dried-out marker you want something that evaporates
more quickly. The ones I have are labeled "Nontoxic," and I don't think
xylene (suggested by somebody else) falls into that category.
