> I agree, but interestingly enough it looks completely fine once I download
it and open it in my standard image viewer (Irfanview).  The colors are much
darker after it has been downloaded, and everything is easy to read.  I
guess that browsers aren't quite as good at drawing PNGs as the dedicated
programs are?  Strange.

I second redrawing.  I've attached the result of a quick 150% scaling.  I
had to redo the text, as it became rather fuzzy.  If this is too ugly, feel
free to redraw it yourself.  ^_^
