   Forte produced a paper called Bromofort which was available up until
1996. It was a cold tone paper very stark contrast, graded only
Very similar Imop to Kodak Elite VC paper.

   Forte continued to produce the paper but it was not sold here in the
because of waning interest.

Richard do you know off hand when Brovira was discontinued?
