Oh...they really are...I've opened in Gimp and checked. I've printed it out on printer and checked. I still don't believe it though...

No! I don't believe it. I've printed out the webpage and they still look completely different

Really, they are the same shade. Print it out and cut out the squares and place them side by side...or just use some paint program to compare them. Weird illusion, huh?

Amazing. We've actually run this by the Head of Digital Imaging at the National Gallery and he confirms that they are the same colour. He's seen stuff like this before, but never one that works so well for monochrome!
