Very interesting discussion.  I was particularly intrigued by the discussion of Indre’s synaesthesia.  Indre, what happens if you see block letters printed in color and some of the letters (presumably if seen in a black font) would have a different color from the color in which they are printed?  Does your synaesthesia prevail or do you see the color of the font?  Is it the same for others with this condition?  What happens if you see a part of a letter printed in a non-black or white color, then see the whole letter, then just a part of the letter again…. does the color change, then change back?
