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 Donna aardvark wrote: > > > From: "Patricia Meeks" <pmeeks at email.msn.com> > > > > My client wants a more "golden" color.
