I've been using gimp for a short while now, and the one problem that
coming up is when I convert an RGB image to indexed, to save as a gif
with a transparent background.

I (think I) understand the issues with converting RGB colour to
indexed, but what I don't understand is that I always seem to lose
quality too (I guess that's somehow also a colour problem?)

Even if I do nice simple fonts, in black, on a transparent background,
I lose quality of the fonts on converting to indexed. I either lose
nice smooth edges, or pixels within narrow parts of small fonts, or

Why is this, and is there anything I can do about it? I need to do a
lot of simple colour fonts with transparent backgrounds, so this is a
real problem for me.

many thanks
