I was told once by someone that lived in Australia that polyethylene 
sutable for capacitors was hard to find there, I am certainly glad to 
hear that is not the case!

Ah ha! Again we hear the much malined black polyethylene not living 
up to it's bad ( and aparently false) reputation! This indeed seems 
to be one of those situations where a lie repeated long enough 
becomes accepted as truth! This must be about the fifth time I've 
heard that someone was using black polyethylene in their capacitor, 
with no problems!
