Same here on my office TFT. I manage several websites here at my
university and playing with colors, esp. backgroundcolors, has always
been a pain. Usually a CRT is brighter than a TFT and offers more
contrast, so the site looks different on any Monitor/Browser/OS.
If possible, I avoid using colors on the whole site.=20
IMO the site shoudn't be touched. It works perfectly from my Hp
Jornada and my VAXstation with lynx on a VT100 :-)
