    Hereís my problem, we have a client who's corporate colour is a light orange. Itís on everything from brochures, letter heads, logos etc....

    The problem I have is when using 16 bit colour it looks about right.....but once you use 24 or 32 bit colour itís the most YUK red Iíve ever seen.

    If we make it look about right in 24bit colour, its a crappy looking yellow.

    Its abit lighter than the orange used here in sitepoint.

    I thought dreamweaver used websafe colours?

    has anyone got a soloution to this?



    Cheers!

    You dont have to use websafe colors. I personally don't worry about that.

    This is really up to you. You'll never get the color the same in all resolutions, so you'll just have to pick the one you like best. Since the client uses 16bit, I'd design it so it looks good for them.
