for the instructional video which I assume is what you

(as it were), and we should adjust our files somewhat
to compensate for the 90% of the world that has 2.2
gamma settings on their monitors, at least when it
comes to web sites.
Why don't PC generated sites look too light on Macs
then? My site looks disturbingly dark on PC monitors.
