Mike C.: Woah, why is this obsolete? I still use the .pal myself, in Photoshop.
James Paige: I changed the obsolete tag to a revise tag. You are right. Just because we need to add a 24-bit 16x16 bmp doesn't mean there is any reason to get rid of the other formats.
Andrusi: Have I gone insane, or do the new palette's shades of gray vary randomly between being greenish and bluish?
