Well, now, here is some good news from someone who
obviously knows what is going on. Thanks. :-)

Now, can you tell us how color works on the Mac G4?
Pavel and I have gotten each other totally confused
trying to answer a private e-mail question from a
lurker. :-(

What I have noticed is that on a 32-bit display, it
seems almost impossible to flip back and forth between
Device, Decomposed=0 and Device, Decomposed=1. What is
the best way to be able to display either a 24-bit or
an 8-bit image? It seems to me the color table vectors
have to be re-loaded every time you set Decomposed=0.
Is this what you recommend?
