      I thought the important thing was whether or not
      the paper was acid-free/archival. Is that not
      being used as a standard any more?
      (I suppose that in 80-100 years, the world may
      have other problems than the disintegration of
      thousands of insect labels, but the percent cost
      of labelling that is the paper seems small to me, so I use it.)
