    Hey folks...I have seen quite a few peeps on here complaining about how their colors don't look the same on another computer as it did on their own. This is a great article from WebMonkey about the death of the 216-color palette.

    It goes into detail about the way the color palette works and gives superb examples. Every web designer OWES it to her/himself to read this article.

    cheers

    Nice article. It's a bit scary the color difference the higher colors bring out....22 "safe" colors. Too much green and not a whole lot of attractive green either

    I've read that...pretty sad state of affairs I think.

    As a matter of interest, which colour depth do you design in, 16 bit or 24/32 bit? I don't think there are a lot of web developers designing in 256 colours now.

    We design in 32 bit colour, but we make sure that everything looks ok in 16 bit and is functional in 8 bit.

    I use 32bit on my monitors. Don't even bother checking in 16 bit. Probably short-sighted on my part, but oh well...
