hi Kristina,

'color chain' is indeed implemented in Jmol (no trailing 's').

I can't say if *all* RasMol commands have made it into Jmol yet, but that is certainly a primary goal of recent development.  I would say the great, great majority are there.

if you find one that does not work, ask on the user list - it is monitored quite closely by the developers, who are very responsive to user input.

there is a Jmol user list (find out more at <http://www.jmol.org/>) for specific questions about Jmol.  but this list is a good one as well.  :-)
