Fred R. Byers' NIST Guide says: "To eliminate the risk, water-based
markers are recommended for CD labeling. As a solvent, alcohol is
generally less damaging than xylene and toluene, which are common in
aromatic solvent-based markers. According to anecdotal reports,
alcohol-based markers can be used to label CDs without causing
performance problems. However, there are no explicit lab test results to
show what effect solvents in markers have on different CDs or DVDs,
particularly over the long term."

Are the Sharpie markers alcohol-based? How would you tell? What about
other brands?
