AZO and amidol combination is a well known dogma but not universally
supported. Some think chlorobromide papers processed in standard PQ,
MQ or phenidone-ascorbate print developers are just as good. You can
try both and decide for yourself, but it's only fair to compare bests
of both types, not the best of one and a so-so or crap of the other.

Or, you could figure out what kind of final product you want and wark
backward from there.
