    I have question that has been bugging me lately and hopefully there is someone out there with an answer. Here we go: I designed a website using my iBook. Whenever I view it on my Mac it looks great, but whenever I view it on a PC (I know PCs suck) the graphics are blurry, not crisp like the iBook. Does anyone out there know the answer to this? Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    This isn't your graphics, its the settings on the pc your using.
    Try degaussing the screen etc.

    or possibly the screen resolution is set to 96ppi, which means your 72ppi images aren't at their best. it shouldn't make that much of a difference though.

    Ok, first off, the statement "PC's Suck" might be true, but is not really relevant due to the fact that the installed base of personal computers is around 85% in Windows favor.
    That being said, the color and quality of images you get from a PC will never be as crisp and clear as that of a Mac with a similar video setup. While a Mac will allow viewing of 128 (web) colors, the PC only allows for 116. The colors on the PC will always be viewed as darker as well.
    When web designing on Mac, set your Adobe Gamma (if available) control panel to Windows Default Gamma (2.2), and darken your screen slightly. This will give you an idea of how the pages will look on a PC.
    And yes, make sure the video settings on the PC are at least set to 'High Color' (16 bit). If possible, look at your work on a few different PC's, maybe the vid card (or monitor) in the one your using is shot.
    I design my pages on a Mac, and am fortunate enough to have a decent PC w/ Win 2000 to test pages on.
    I hope some of this is helpful.
