Default MX colour problem?

I'm using a websafe colour (#666699).
Part of my page has to blend in with the HTML background.
The html background is set to the above colour and according to the flash colour picker so is the panel in my flash movie.

It displays fine on my monitor. However, someone sent me this screenshot and you can clearly see there's a difference between the two colours.

Just on the offchance that it may work I took a screenshot of the html page, imported that jpg into flash and I've used it to replace the flash panel. Sure enough Flash's colour picker determined it as a slightly different shade (#66669A).

Thress questions:
First has anyone else encountered this?
Second, if so did you find an easy way around it?
Third, if you have time to look at the page please could anyone tell me if they also see the difference now that I've altered the movie. Website is here

Thanks
Mort

This is very strange.

I've just done this test page
www.nwebb.co.uk/test/colour_strip_container.html

and I've used a colour-picker app to check that when online the swf is the same colour as the background. For me it's spot on, but in the screenshot from my friend you can clearly see the distinction between the swf and the HTML.

It differs in the amount of green.
It can't be my friend's colour setting because if so, everything would be affected by the same amount

Any ideas greatly appreciated

yeah i've been detecting the same issues and found that it had to do with specific user settings (i.e. someone running on 16 bits)

i'm still very puzzled over it since in flash the have the same hexcode, how could lesser colours interprate the same hexocde differently.

It does seem odd. I'm changing my settings here and there's no problem.

So far only the one guy has siad he can see the colour difference.
