     I have used three Abs in the past, albeit briefly, on frozens and on
     Lowicryl K4M processed sections for immuno-em.  If they work on the
     Lowicryl, I'd lay money on it working on paraffins.  I seem to
     remember there was some question regarding the cross reactivity of one
     or more of the antibodies to type I collagen, so you might want to
     check this out with the supplier.  Working in research, we got our
     antibodies fresh from the original investigator, but they may be
     marketed by the companies that others are recommending.  The
     antibodies are:

     20352    Rab@mouse Type III from Daniel Hartman. 1:50 dilution
     20312    Rab@human Type III from Daniel Hartman. 1:50 dilution
     (No Number) Mouse@human Type III from J Ramshaw. 1:4000-1:5000

     The staining was very nice and well defined in the tissue being
     studied (Scoliotic human spine). From my very defective memory it was
     either confined to the chondron, or the matrix between the chondrons.
     The work was never published, other than as a PhD thesis.  I don't
     remember if there were any digestions (Chondroitinase AC or ABC)

     I hope things are going well in Nottingham (I hear the weather's
     atrocious at the moment) and if I don't speak to you before christmas,
     I hope you and your family have a very merry christmas and a happy new
