Hi George:

The priority of materials _IS_ the "correct dyes or inks".

It's my understanding that nothing is currently available since the time 
that Kodak stopped making them.

Notwithstanding that, please don't go to any trouble in looking for DT 
information.  The Epson 2200 does a fine job of color printing and I 
don't plan to get into DT in any way.
