replied to last in thread:

I dont know if anybody mentioned this, but perhaps mirc could (maybe thru dll - I dont pretend to know about this stuff) base it's color range based off of video display settings. For example, my video card (GForce FX 5600) is set for 32bit color. If mirc were to allow local color enhancements, it would be good to use that as it's starting point to see how many colors can be used, and then do (for sake of example) the hexidecimal (the way HTML can do it - if I called this wrong) codes. Basically:

1) Gather video card settings to figure out displayable colors
2) on the local side, allow for a pallette for us to choose from

Make any sence?
