Hi, im having trouble viewing some GIF images that come with my lecture notes. Here is an example:

As you can see, it's very hard to distinguish some of the detail. Iv tried zooming in using GIMP/Firefox and it appears that some of the characters are missing pixels altogether, but that's not actually the case. When i print this out from Microsoft Word ( using XP ) the image is perfect. On the converse, when i print this out in Linux ( using a browser/ OpenOff / Gimp ) i don't see the detail.

Does anyone know how i make this information appear? Is there some way of changing some settings of the GIF in GIMP and the information will magically appear?
