   As one might imagine going from 32 bits per pixel to 8 bits per
pixel is a complicated thing.  Currently Batik does not do this.  You
may be able to use other command line tools to accomplish this (such
as ImageMagik (sp?)).  If someone wanted to contribute a good
palletizer to Batik I'm sure it would be welcome as many SVG files can
be palletized with little loss of quality if done properly.

   I suggest you switch browsers :)
