    Yes, you could tone the bleached and redeveloped negative without losing what you gained by the staining-tanning method. Whatever selenium would have added to the original will still be added. It will be pretty much like selenium toning a negative that was originally developed in, say, PMK.

    I should have mentioned that the tanning action may add somewhat to the sharpness.

    Perhaps your film is not so suited to XR-1. 1978 may also
    be a factor.

    A question; will that selenium treatment do anything for
    the very low density, but some image, areas.? Dan

    Selenium doesn't help the low density areas much. It pushes up the highlights.
