Hi Doug,

I agree it would be a good idea to move it somewhere, but I'm not sure the logo page would be a good idea, since the index is intended to include colors used on the website in general, not just on the logo. Unless you are thinking about turning the logo page into a general style guide.

Cheers,
Lea
