8.8. monochrome Media Query

The monochrome media feature describes the number of bits per pixel in a monochrome frame buffer. It works the same way as the color property — it can be applied to all visual media, and can accept the min- and max- prefixes — although due to its nature, monochrome displays tend not to use too many bits to describe the monochrome “depth.”

A value of 1 will describe a basic “black and white” display, and higher values describe most grayscale devices (for example, a non-color Palm V has a palette of 16 shades of gray, while earlier models used a whopping 4 shades of gray). A value of 0 specifies that the display is not monochrome (and is therefore a color display).
