'Why brown part-numbers?'

Greetings;

While some PIC parts have part numbers printed with nice bright
white ink, others have some sort of brownish color ink that makes
them very difficult to read.

Why is this?

TIA

ok..jef

As an educated guess, I'd say the harder-to-read ones are laser-marked.

Gosh, your probably right!

Looking at the things under the looking glass I can see where the
numbers are scribed--quite possibly by a laser. Neat!

(looking over at the two 16F876s I'm using in my current project) - Yes, the
hard to read "brownish" ones are indeed laser etched numbers.  And I too
wish they'd
stick with the white ink - much easier to read in low light...
