Because of compression in JPEGs, solid colors my vary slightly. Simply put, if you convert a JPEG to a GIF and sample the background for a transparent color, the color may vary from pixel to pixel, and results can be poor.
A possible way around this is to convert to 24 bit color first, and then to 8 bit before saveing as a GIF.
