Hello Histonet,
   A colleague has suggested that I do some research on Herxheimer's  
stain.  Nothing turned up in the archives, so I hope someone can help  
me.  She was interested in its properties for staining sebaceous  
glands along with making hair visible (esp. in whole mounts).  We know  
that oil red is used for this too.  Does anyone have any info on which  
would be better for what?  Much of the work I do is focused on hair  
follicles, so this would be valuable info.
   (I also apologize for any funny phrasing or bad grammar as I am a  
bit under the weather right now)
