     Chances are, the graphics dept came up with the layout and this guy
     had to convert it to html.  One project a co-worker of mine is working
     on is being dictated by the graphics dept.  The look that is.

I just now FINALLY got around to reading this.

The article starts by saying this:

"Our project featured a design with beautiful, subtle pastel colors
that looked ridiculous when converted to their nearest websafe

Here's my question: didn't the designer/artist think about this when
he/she was building the design?  Why not?  Who comes up with these
harebrained schemes?


Strategy 5 & 6 make the most sense to me:

and I've employed them before, noticing such color shifts on 16 bit
(Windows) machines.


I like Strategy 9, also: "Go Back to Print Design."

I would _never_ consider telling a print designer how to design for
print.  It's not my area of expertise, and I know it.  So why do
print designers go around telling web designers how to do their job?

I was just wondering.
