There have been suggestions I have red by other people to try changing
the color encoding for this type of problem. Maybe someone else will
reply to this?
Does it work from the java viewer (which I think uses a different
encoding by default?)
Maybe try vesion 4? in case that was a bug for Win98 that was resolved?
Just some thoughts...
