Sorry to contradict my McSpotlight associate but
the reason that some people are having problems
viewing certain pages is not really just down to
the monitor quality, PC - MAC compatibility or
just the number of colours, but the way certain
web browsers deal with colours which are not in
their current pallet.

Netscape V1 (for the PC) and I assume IBM Web Browser
and maybe some others attempt to achieve colours not
in their pallet by dithering the available colours
which often makes the pages illegible!


Either increase the colours to thousands if your
machine can handle it, or better still, upgrade
your web browser or use a different one.

I find that Netscape V2 works fine, which is
available free to download instantly to educational
establishments or charities, MS Internet explorer
and Mosaic work well too I think.

Anyhow, good luck and if you get any further problems,
