I've been using Wynn White's WW-1 glycin based developer with Forte paper and a few others. I have in general noticed that the Forte papers do not go as low in contrast as the Zone VI Brilliant and the Oriental Warmtone, which may explain your blocked highlights. Of all of the papers I have tried with this developer, the Oriental warmtone has the nicest, warmest tone that just turns absolutely beautiful with a brief selenium toning. It will also give a reasonably low contrast print (i.e. print a high contrast negative properly), unlike the forte. FWIW, Wynn's website mentions out-of-date glycin, and says that it gives darker stained highlights, not blasted-out highlights. Check out www.wynnwhitephoto.com
