It's a joke. Don't bother trying. Go back and re-read the page, and make
sure you scroll to the very bottom of the page to get the punchline.

I've seen this problem too, and I think I traced it to the type of format
that I was using to create the book. Try using a MP2K format, landscape,
and see if that works (if of course you're running a MP2K). The early MPs
didn't have the 16 grayscales, so they'd display in "black and white." I
think you set this preference in the Newton Press Preferences.
