The address I gave below is the one hat is shown
on Brian's page. 

However, I usually access it through the link on the
Histotech's Home Page. Try this:

Click on Peggy's Links

Click on Stains, Tissues, Images and Procedures

Click on Stains Files (hint: this section is alphabetical)

You should now be in Brian's page.

Click on Staining Techniques

Click on Mordanted hematoxylins

I tried to  list Brian's website as it appears on my screen, 
as a shortcut for Histonetters, but it doesn't seem to
work that way. Sorry.
