Hi Richard,
	Another technique is the modified Fouchet technique for liver
bile ( in Bancroft and Stevens - Theory and Practice........) Bile
existing outside the liver is apparently unlkely to stain however.. If
you are trying to differentiate between bile and lipofuscin, it is
perhaps also worth remembering that lipofuscin will autofluoresce
whereas bile pigments don't .  Schmorl's technique will also demonstrate
bile ( along with lipofuscin and a number of other things :)   )
		Hope this helps
