Hmm, that's not too easy; my graphics software is xv and gvim. I'll
look into this.

Militant pacifists may take that color as an insult.

fisiologie sounds Spanish (I suppose it's rather 'físiologia').
Physiology becomes Physiologie in German ;-)

Black is reflection = 0. What is dark black, then?

If you use 'verboten' in a text that contains German and English you
need to point out if you use it in the English or German sense. In
German it simply means 'forbidden' whereas in English it means:
"forbidden usually by authority and often unreasonably"

My homepage has 'Content enhanced - use any browser' 'Lynx inspected'
and a 'Links now' button (which means that I recommend Links). But I
will not add a text reading '...better seen with Links...' because it
a) isn't true (text better displays in *elinks*) and b) because I
don't optimize my pages for a certain browser - I try my best to make
them independent of a certain browser.

I don't have Qt, leave alone KDE. I run IceWM (I used to maintain the
IceWM faq ;-).
