The theoretical aspects of using line radiation sources for soft x-ray microscopy are discussed. High resolution, absolutely calibrated spectra of a gas-puff z-pinch source are presented. A qualitative discussion of radiation damage mechanisms and the time scales involved indicate that any picture taken in less than a millisecond may be less damaged by the radiation. Results of a first attempt to use a 100J, nanosecond laser to produce a carbon plasma as a source for very short time-scale microscopy are presented.
