  The information on the web site is not up to date. The
recommendations have been there for, in some cases, years.
Papers like Kodabromide have been discontinued for a long
time. The current data will stay there until paper supplies
run out. Kodak estimates it has enough stock to last for six
months but that is at normal sales rates. If people stock up
the current supply may run out more quickly. There is no
question whatever that all Kodak black and white papers,
including the chromogenic ones, have been discontinued.
Eventually, they will get around to updating the web site.
