Note that screen object inplemented first in NN4 version.
So you should check for earlier versions of browsers, before you
could use it.

or just
if (window.screen) ColD = screen.colorDepth;
colorDepth in N4 isn't adapted for that purpose, returning
the # of bits available for composing a palette
color mode:_256_64K_16M
pixelDepth:___8__16__24
colorDepth:__18__16__24

'scuse the formatting

so a the better test would be

if (window.screen) {
      ColD = screen.pixelDepth
               ? Math.pow( 2, screen.pixelDepth ) // in N4
               : Math.pow( 2, screen.colorDepth ) // in E4
}
