Picric acid in Van Giesons

From:"Johnston, Kathy"

Does anyone out in Histoland have a substitution for Picric Acid in their
Van Gieson counterstain.  I'm trying to eliminate the need for PA here as I
always have a heck of a time ordering it in, not to mention there has got to
be something better to use (i.e.. safer).

Thanks for your help!
