The Web starts to get colour.

One of the things that graphic designers have always struggled with on the Web is the limited range of colours, and the consistency of display from one screen to another. With Safari on Mac OS X and Windows not, things are getting a whole lot better:
Apple machines are in widespread use among graphics professionals, and the operating system supports color encoding schemes that are called profiles and are standardized by a group called the International Color Consortium (ICC). Safari checks to see whether an image is tagged with a particular ICC color profile and displays it accordingly, tuned to work with the user's monitor.
