Gayle (or anyone else),

Perhaps you can clear up some confusion regarding the correct proportions 
of haematoxylin for Carazzi's formula. In the third edition of Bancroft he 
cites 0.5g hx for a final solution of 500cc and doubling the mix to 1g for 
a rapid method. However, in Bancroft 4th edition he cites using 5g hx for a 
final solution of 500cc and doubling (10g) or even trebling (15g) for more 
rapid staining. Which is the most suitable mix?
