Thanks for the warning. I happen to have both kinds of TEA here, so I'll make it a point to test with both. Hopefully as PE says, the difference will only amount to a note like "for 85% TEA, reduce times by 4%" or similar.

I've tested Trial-130119 with both Tri-X and Delta-400 using Dimezone S. Compared with XTOL, this Trial dev gives the same or a hint worse grain with Tri-X, and noticeably finer grain with Delta-400. Ilford is committed to this market, so I'm making certain that whatever I come up with works well with their films.
