    I have one that is in direct sunlight all day, if it has yellowed, it has not been noticeable. The table is about 5 years old. I wouldn't be too hyperactive about keeping it new looking, some would say they look better with a little character. Just clean up spills quickly.

    Get the uncoated one and use this.

    Untreated marble, especially light-colored marble, is prone to staining. If it is somewhere where there is any risk of that, you do need to seal it. Otherwise, the first time you spill some wine, you will be . . . displeased.

    This stuff works great. The only thing is that you need to re-apply it every few years. But all you have to do is wipe it on and let it dry.

    I think that is what I'm going to end up doing. Though most people haven't had an issue, the warning from the various authorized dealers is enough to be of concern. I think your suggestion is a happy medium.
