I need to display information about approximately 16 elements. The display will be in row-column format and the order of the elements will be fixed. So the display will look like: text in colorA | text in colorB | text in colorC | ..... text in colorA | ..... How do I choose colors such that adjacent colors do not appear similar and that any given color is easily distinguished from the others? If you know of a good algorithm for choosing the set of colors or can point to an example of someone doing this well I would appreciate it. Also it would be nice if the result were not ugly.
