	When you float the section do you ever have any evidence of the
tissue exploding or seperating?  Reason to ask is that i sometimes have
this happen with murine brain and skin. I have usually been able to control
this by lowering the temp of the water bath and using a flourescent light
so there is no heat from above.
	Hope you get it worked out>
