    Shanghai GP3 (cheap, but not nasty) has black paper with grey numbers - very difficult to see through a red window.

    On a nearly completely unrelated subject, Ilford paper has light grey numbers on white paper, which I find all but impossible to see through a red window! Is it just me? The black markings near the beginning show up fine. Why on earth do they use light grey for the numbers?

    I had a look, mine is "Lucky Film". Cheap and nasty. (curly, can't see the numbers through the red window, slower than box speed, etc.).
