Welcome back. I hope you had a good vacation.

Thanks. This is a good selection of molecular visualization software

Uhhh ... if I understand you correctly ... changing carbon to be

As a general rule, the default Jmol colors will be the same as the
RasMol/Chime colors. In the case of multiple elements having the same
color, Jmol will try to define different shades of the same color.
In RasMol, Phosphorus, Iron, and Barium all have the same color ...
orange. There has been a 'motion' to change Iron to a rust color ... we
will probably do that. I have no idea what Barium is/does/looks like.
So, Phosphorus will probably stay the same color.

I will read this.
Good to have you back,
