I bet Siegel's backgrounds are really pretty. I couldn't tell, because
while I *do* use Netscape (at work, anyway), my monitor here at
work only sees 16 colors, so all I got was a white background and
a lecture. And if you're thinking they'll look pretty spiffy on your
256-color monitor, guess again. I realize my 16-color monitor
is just one step above carving on a stone tablet, but is 256-colors really
that out of date now?
