Just for comparison, Ircle supported 28 colors... seen here...
Beleive me, 28 colors was enough. I don't see why the number of colors (for text) should be more than 32. MSPAINT also has a default palette of 28 colors.
Of course... when will mIRC's editbox be WYSIWIG? It still can't display color or styles. Nore can the SCRIPT editor. Rather you still see "03Hello World" instead of "Hello World
". This needs to be addressed!
