comment How to optimize images for e-readers?
I know I can reduce the quality. Is there any optimal way to reduce the quality and perhaps even apply image effects so the resulting graphic looks identical to when one views the original graphic, but now loads faster?

comment How to select 5 optimally visible and distinguishable colors?
Yes, the letters help people to know how to pronounce the word, but the color tells them which tone to use. There is a fall back is the marks above the letters. The colors are used as additional reinforcement. The goal is to help readers to remember the correct tones more easily, as some people find it difficult to remember the marks above the letters.

I found these suggested colors at sinosplice.com/life/archives/2009/08/11/… and found these colors make it easy for readers to remember which color means which tone, could not find a readable palette. That is why any shade of those colors will be fine.

The four colors plus black represent the 4 tones in Mandarin Chinese, plus the neutral tone, which could use a color, but does not need one. Each color is assigned carefully to a different tone. blue = flat, high tone, like the sky; green = rising, as a tree grows; brown = falling, then rising, like the shape of hills; and red = falling, because the tone has an energetic sound to it.
