Hi all, I'm arriving a bit late - neat thread here.  One thing Patrician
mentioned that I don't think was addressed, was that she said she
couldn't see the difference between the three gold colors.  I can, and
someone else said they could.  So, Patrician, you may want to adjust
your monitor.  I ran across this link not too long ago -
http://africafocus.library.wisc.edu/visualcheck.html   Also, I tried to
get a client to use it because I think his settings are too dark, but
that didn't get very far. ;)  

best wishes
