I've only been using OS X for a couple of weeks now, and have only just started to try and migrate my web development environment from Windows to OS X. I've just been creating a cascading style sheet in Coda, which in doing so have encountered the Apple Color Picker for first time. I've been using the HSB (Hue, Saturation, Brightness) color slider and noticed that these particular color sliders have a configurable color profile. By default this is set to Generic RGB, but I want to set to the color profile of the system which is "Dell U2410", the problem is, it won't stay at that setting as the next time I close and re-open the color picker, the color profile on the "color sliders" tab is set back to "Generic RGB".

To clarify, here's a screenshot demonstrating the color profile list I'm talking about:

In the screenshot, it's set to Dell U2410 which is what I want, but I close and re-open the color picker, it goes back to Generic RGB. It's important that this be set to Dell U2410 as otherwise there will be color discrepancies between my Mac and PC which will come as an unpleasant surprise when I've finished knocking up a web design.

Any help is much appreciated.
