There's a simple device that you can buy that allows you to
calibrate your monitor to exactly display colors according to the
RGB and CMYK color chart. This involves a process of holding the device
over your monitor and displaying a chart on your monitor and adjusting
your monitor until you get certain colors right. It's really pretty simple.
I have one of these devices at home, and I'm pretty sure it cost me about
$25-30. If you want, I can get more info about it when I get home tonight.
Let me know off-list if you would be interested in this information.
