The difference here is the presence of RGB or transparency on the [4]  
page which changes the colour model from greyscale to RGB which is  
displayed differently.

If all of the colours are defined in terms of CMYK things look much  
nicer so long as one doesn't use transparency.

In the interim one can use a tool like Enfocus PitStop to make it  
look nicer by converting to CMYK (and changing the rich black to  
c0m0y0k100) if desired.
