using NO bulbs with VHO ballast


I recall reading that it is possible to use NO (normal output)
fluorescent bulbs with a VHO ballast. How well does this work?
What is the output compared to utilizing a VHO bulb? How much
does this shorten the life of the bulb? Does it adversely affect
the ballast to use the incorrect bulb type?
