Hi Michael,
The visual quality is looking good. I am using WinDjView 0.4.1 on my 
laptop. The only problem I am having on my end is when I copy and paste 
text. When I past text into Notepad or Word some of the text characters 
are being replaced with strange ascii characters. Is this something that 
I need to fix on my end? Thanks for your hard work on this project. I 
definitely want to purchase the license. Rainbow on disc will be a 
valuable resource.
