Agreed. Most knowledgeable sources that I've run across on Web site design
suggest creating JPG and interlaced GIF files to be read at 640x480x256.
Many users whose monitors are capable of higher resolutions regularly use
this setting anyway. And that means that 256 should be the total number of
colors on the page, not just in each individual photo or graphic.
