I have dug out a copy of the magazine

To try and be brief (and bear in mind that the article was written three years ago)........

Most digital cameras will automatically embed an sRGB profile, but many of the 'high end' digital cameras can be set to embed an optional 'Adobe RGB' colour profile (looking at a Canon 350D, it has this option buried away in the menu).

Basically when editing pictures for web use, you should check that sRGB is the chosen colour space under Edit > Color settings, also I note that when doing "save as" in PSE5 there is a box to check for the ICC profile, which will tell you what colour profile the image is being saved with.

I hope this makes sense!
