I'm particulary interested in this keyword since I have many problem
with colors.

First of all I'm working with IDL 5.4 for win and I use WIN98 (16.8
millions of colors (24 bit)).

For fixing some color problem I use (taken from the demo of IDL, I
don't know what they mean):

device, decomposed=0
device, bypass_translation=0

When I make some contour with /fill all is all right, but when I try
to use xinteranimate

  xinteranimate, set = [xw,yw,hrs]
  for i=0,hrs-1 do begin

I get completely different (and not really nice!!) colors from the
imgs that I see before the animation.

Does anyone can tell me why and what's the meaning (in a simpler way
than that of the IDL man) of the device keyword I use?

Thank you very much also for helping me with the /dimension keyword!!
