long ago (4 years) i recall learning about ROY G BIV. the colours of the 
rainbow. now in physics indigo is not classified as a colour in the rainbow 
according to the new textbooks. this dissaperance of the colour even has all the 
teachers in the science department query as to what happend. also what group of 
scientests stated that indigo was no longer in the rainbow.
thank you
