I think I might have a lead for you!
Bring your tiff file into Illustrator and then under Effects chose Rasterize.With the image selected, I used the eyedropper tool and pick a color. It automatically colors the black lines to the color you select.To make the background transparent, go into the little transparency window thingy (very technical terminology) and you have achoice of the type of transparency in the pull down menu. Just choose "multiply". It should make the "white" transparent.
I hope this works! Good luck. I hate those high stress weeks--things always seem to go wrong and one can never thinkclearly to fix them!
