Didn't think of a color blindness issue.   Of course, one wonders what all of
the POV-Ray renders would look like in that case.   :O

I think a complicating factor is that the alternating "ledger" highlighting
colors are white and blue - which enhances the contrast enough in some cases,
and washes it out in others.

I am still perplexed as to why it "suddenly" happened when switching to a new
system.   The HP V241 was usually the "nice" monitor with the rich, vibrant
colors and better contrast in comparison to the laptop monitor(s).  Now it's all
I'm using, but I don't recall ever seeing the issue when using it as a dual
display and moving the browser window over to the external monitor.   It's
puzzling.
