We have done this whole fetus stain that Gayle mentioned. I have an article
on it I'd be glad to fax to whoever was needing the info. Donna Montague

I have seen fetuses stained with alizarin red S and alcian blue. 

Cartilage vs bone is clearly distinguished, and
the samples where stained as whole mounts. Have never done it, but seen
photos in publications, spectacular preparations!  Hopefully someone who
has done this, will come forth with their tried and true method.
