Sandy,

I toned more than 50 VDB's for my next show in Belgium before fixing with
VERY DILUTE selenium toner (KRST) without any problems (see my post from
October, 17th.). Prints were well washed (10 minutes) before toning and I
don't see any staining.
Sorry, right now I have no facilities to put some pictures on the web page.
