Windows colour profile (Web Safe Colours)

  • # May 12, 2010 at 2:09 pm

    Hi Guys,

    I’m trying to create a site for a client, the only thing holding me back is the colour. On the Mac, perfect colour match, however; on Windows, both XP & Vista the colour defaults to a grey, not the colour i’ve selected. The colour needed is #A5A08B. Can anyone help? I’ve also tried to use .JPG’s, .PNG’s, .BMP’s but nothing. I’ve messed with the colour profile & all sorts, absolutely nothing!!!

    Please can someone help. Don’t want to tell the client that I have colour restrictions. I have two CSS files, on for IE & one for others. Is there also a way to detect the OS for the CSS?
