Hi Mark,

Thanks for the review of Ilford's Cooltone paper.  Everything I've read about 
it agrees with you that it truly is very nice.  I'll stop at Calumet in the 
morning and get some-they have a big pile of it by the door.  I just wish 
they made it in FB!  I understand why you add Benzotriazole to the Dektol, 
but I'm curious why you add a splash of Neutol.  Does it change the color of 
the print, cooler like the Benzotriazole?  Have you by any chance tried Burki 
and Jenny Cold-Tone Developer #53 in Stephen Anchell's The Darkroom Cookbook? 
 I like it a lot.
