Named colors in HTML are very nice. Why bother rememering hexadecimal RGB strings when you have them predefined as “CornflowerBlue” or “DarkSalmon” or everyone’s favorite, LightGoldenrodYellow
But it makes you wonder when you see that you have, on one hand, “gray”, and on the other hand “lightgrey”. Note the difference, and witness frustration unfold.

It’s when you writea website with complex graphics design, that you need these things. You know, to go along with the images the designer sent you.
Btw: your colors didn’t show right.

Already fixed.
And yes, I’m very pleased with the colors, just not with the goddamn gr[e,a]ys!

If you have a unix box somewhere you can look for a file named “rgb.txt” that resolves these names to hex triplets.
