Thanks, Jim.  In frustration I just panned through the colors to pick what I
needed.  Numbers it shall be, which is certainly a lot quicker.  By the way,
the supposed selenium toning didn't look like a selenium toned print to me,
so I went back to a quadtone I've used before that just adds richness to the
print without injecting a pronounced hue.  The prints I toned with selenium
back when appear mostly black with a slight aubergine tone.  I'll have to
work up my own formula I suspect.

Thanks again,

Bruce
