  Nested Classes, Part 1
Subject:   Accessing Protected Members

I changed resolution from private to protected access and ColorMonitorScreen compiled just fine, so I don't think the statement, "Since ColorPixelPoint is not a member of BasicMonitorScreen, access to BasicMonitorScreen's private and protected members is not allowed," is entirely correct.


I only tried it with 1.5beta, so maybe it's a language change, but I think it makes sense. A member of a sub-class should have access to protected members of the super-class.
