Abstract: For certain kinds of compact Hausdorff spaces S, necessary and sufficient topological conditions are provided for determining if there exists a norm 1 projection of $ C(S)$ onto any given separable selfadjoint subalgebra A, the conditions being in terms of the decomposition that A induces on S. In addition, for arbitrary S and selfadjoint closed subalgebra A of $ C(S)$, some results on lower bounds for the norms of projections of $ C(S)$ onto A are obtained. An example is given which shows that the greatest lower bound of the projection norms need not be attained.
