    For info: browser safe colours

    I came across this website that has a chart with all the browser safe colours & their references. Thought it may be useful:

    But can't monitors/video cards display a maximum of 32-bit color?

    At any rate, I've used websafe colors on the past 3 versions of my site, but I've abandoned them while designing the upcoming v4.

    I generally use websafe colours for text and "main content" background.

    When missing my graphics drivers last week, I would have taken HUGE issue with that statement.

    Actuall,y i am not sure, but recently i read an article, where ppl are trying to get 48-bit, and well i dont' know if that is out. but it was also a kind of an exaggerated statement
    Peace.
