I'm assuming from your screenshots that you're planning to deliver this over iPads, and that's where you're seeing the discrepancies. WebDirect isn't meant to be delivered through a mobile device, at least this iteration of the product. You can try it of course, but your mileage will vary.

I'm sorry I didn't make it clear that I'm not using a mobile device when accessing these online.
I'm using a PC under Win7 64 bit and a MacBook Air running 10.8.5
Thanks for your help.
Okay - I think it's that you're using Luminous, which has an image fill on the layout. The image fill appears to get dropped in WD (news to me). You can test this with a new blank layout, and then add an image fill to the layout (Appearance tab in Inspector with no body part or object selected will show this), inserting any image you like.
To resolve I'd suggest using a theme with no image fill, or defining a custom theme in the same color range as Luminous for similar effect, but flat colors. Flat design is all the rage anyway.
Thanks for your advice. I think I'm over the fidelity issue; however, I'm still getting screen flickering and slow performance via WebD.
