Umm, "16-bit"? If you mean 16-bit color *depth*, that would allow you
64k available colors. I don't think any form of HTML, even Netscrap or
Microslop Internet Exploder, support more than 8-bit (256 colors) at
this point...

Your friend and mine,
They shoot without shame / In the name of a piece of dirt
For a change of accent / Or the color of your shirt
Better the pride that resides / In a Citizen of the World
Than the pride that divides / When a colorful rag is unfurled
