Subject: [Leica] Resurgence of B&W?

Big Yellow doesn't seem to agree that there is a resurgence of interest in
B&W. I was checking their website for information on Toning B&W papers.
Found a list of various papers and the effects of their toners at different
dilution but noticed a little asterisk by certain of the papers. Thinking
this was going to be some technical exception I scrolled down the page to
find that the footnote to ELITE Fine-Art, KODABROMIDE and EKTALURE read:
*To be discontinued by year end 1999 or when inventories are depleted.

I haven't seen much in the way of an announcement of replacement products,
especially not fibre based papers.
